The right paint to barrel match will reduce that. Take your barrel and put a paintball down it. It should not fall straight through, it should stop and a slight blow in the barrel will pop it out. Too hard of a blow means the ball is too large. That's why barrel kits are good, You can get a good paint to barrel match with different bores.
Also, if you have old paint it won't fly straight. If you have paint sitting at home rotate it so the paint doesn't all sit on one side all the time. The paint will settle and make the ball lop-sided.

Also, chrono your gun, if you are shooting too low or too high a pressure, that can affect the balls flight.

Need For Speed basically covered it.
Also CO2 will make the velocity not very consistant....
If you upgrade to HPA then your gun will shoot more consistantly and it wont swirve as much
