So, I'm new to paintball..wondering whats the best paintballs are for the price. Im looking at getting some Empire Bullets... What about Stingers(my friend got a stinger that was pure plastic...does this happen with every paint?)

The best balls are the ones that match the calibre of your barrel the best.

No imparticular, but I like evil and chronic.

I use any of the X-Ball paint. Depending on the weather I use Bronze, Silver and Gold sometimes.

Good quality and the paint breaks when it hits the target.

The X-Ball paint is good, Bronze isn't too bad price wise. I shoot X-Ball Silver or Marbalizers. Marbz are ALWAYS my first choice though. Been shooting them for better than 10 years.

Anyone have any experience with Empire Bullets/Ngage/Ramp? Or Diablo?

03-13-2006, 09:01 AM

It really matters most what your barrel size is. If you've got a small bore, WGP paint is great, and decently priced. PMI premium for largr bore, thats all I really use...

Although almost everyone does not like it, and it too is a little more on the plastic side. I think scorch (the kind at wal-mart) is a great paint for the price. I have had only one barrel break since ive been using it (since september)

GAP's are pretty good .. Great American Paintballs ... pretty cheap paint too :)
