I think I understand what you are thinking. This is not on my list to change for the moment.
What I have found is that reely brittle balls can have issues even if they are in contact with the bolt and no ball is standing on top. The only things that can be a factor in these breaks are accelleration, preassure over area and if the speed is to high when passing the detents.
I will focus on these areas the next couple of days to figure out a way to reduce the forces acting on the paintball.
If you want a delrin tip, I belive you could by the one for MacDev Clone GTI?
Sadly I do not think it will help verry much against breaking paint in the NT...

or with your milling access. you could just make a new bolt with same specs as factory but with added length.
or a flat faced bolt.
it sounds like with most people trying the oring mod and other attempts to help reduce breakage. the air pressure is the least of issues. it seems like the point of impact to me.
