all regular paint is .68cal. the only other type used is .43 cal (11mm) for some pistols.

....and relative humidity, and storage, and altitude and temperature.... They all play a factor in making paintballs vary from batch to batch and brand to brand (<-- more so). There are all sorts of bore sizers to compensate for the paint you are planning to use 'that' day in 'those' conditions. I know that Tippmann has a product (or endorses one at least) that uses 'fins', short bore sizers that compensate for ball size variance, by allowing you to change out the first 1-2 inches of the barrel with a bore sizer that closely matches the paint you are using...

blah blah blah.... I have found in my many years of trying to get more accurate paintballs that you can either 1) get good paint and store it well 2) use whatever the crap they give you and try to match the barrel to compensate... either method has its merits and pitfalls. YMMV ....

hope this helps....:o

Would you say Formula 13 is on par with Marbalizer? Marbs are more expensive in WNY.
