For a stock pilot, since its a high pressure gun, i would recommend a thicker shelled paintball like draxxus recsport, draxxus midnight, or if hes a speedball player, xball bronze. Anything made by draxxus is good stuff, besides xball gold or silver because its too thin of a shell for a stock pilot, the high pressure would most likely chop it.
Myself personally have had luck with Nelson Nel-splat and Draxxus Dusk paint. Those are just some suggestions.

The type of paint you use is highly influenced by your bare bore. You need to make sure you have a good match. Check out Otter's site for barrel bore sizes and paintball sizes so you can get a good match.
Personally my favorite paint is Marballizers but for the money XBall Bronze is awesome.

I like Marballizers too but If you drop the pressure a bit you will have a less chance on breaking a ball. Hitting the ball with 800psi increases the chance of ball breaking. Thicker shell paint you will see less of this but then may not break on target.
If you want a semi good reg. to drop the pressure a bit, let me know, I got one for sale.
