View Full Version : How much paint do you use on a regular sunday outing

06-05-2009, 03:50 AM
Lately ive been buying 2 cases of paint and going through 3000 paintballs. I only spend about 60 bucks for 2 cases of Maxim cp paint by jt with purple shell and pink fill. You can always find it on sale for 30 a case at sports authority. It breaks well from waist high drops on the ground and never breaks in my marker which is always good. Usally im getting about 20-25 kills a day using this paint.

Field paint by the way varys everytime i go to my local fields and is set at $55 a case which sucks to me. I like to keep my outings cheap so i can afford to go.

depends. a case if im playing a lot of games with the timmy, 500-800 if im using the pump.

I like to play conservative games, so I usually use around 1000-1200 on a normal field day... Luckily my field just opened up to B.Y.O.P's!

ehh, depends on what your playing, woods, 400-800 balls, hyperball all day 1500-2500, and im with ferret, i waste alot of paint :P

Last time I played it was one on one for about 5 or 6 hours and I used 5 bags of paint. Sometimes I use more and sometimes I use less. All depends on what I'm playing and what gun I'm using.

on a sunday in the woods i'll shoot about a case/2500 roughly when im using my vice.
with my sniper i'll shoot like half case

06-05-2009, 04:14 PM
i use between 2000 and 3000, depending. i use Jt paint also, it just says "Paintballs" on the box. I NEED to find better paint, though. this stuff breakes 1 or 2 out of 20 time dropped from shoulder height. it is TERRIBLE. field paint is 100/case for my field.

500 or so, using a semi.

07-06-2009, 09:52 AM
When i used my ion, normally 1500-2000 for a whole day.

07-06-2009, 12:20 PM
i play woods ball and i will usually put maybe half a case at the most

07-06-2009, 04:35 PM
In woods 700-1500 Speed ball 2000-4000 Depends on position I play and the level of who your playing.

Depends on what I'm playing, what gun how many games etc. I usually start off the day with the PMR and a lot of paint gets used, when I run down to a bag or less I switch to the phantom and go from there.. never end up running out of paint.

So really it comes down to how much paint I started the day with/if I have money. I don't go over a case though most of the time.

I used to use a little less than a case, but lately I have been using about 2000-3000

07-10-2009, 09:36 PM
i quit using paint.. i tag people out. :semi :dodgy::

i try for 1/2 case at the most if its a longer or bigger day of play. Small groups i'll use 1/4 case.

1/2 a case!? I'm jealous, lol... *I wish I could be that conservative*

07-11-2009, 07:57 PM
Oh my God you people use a lot of paint.

I use 50-500 MAX even with a semi in one days play. I'm a firm believer in making every shot count. And if I have to scare someone into their bunker so that I can move up, I have a team mate do it :p I can't even keep track of how many kills I get either :\

I guess that's what you do when you're used to being poor and not wanting to spend $70 on a case of X-ball silver at the field.

In our first game wiht the tank we shot just over 4 cases

09-19-2009, 04:07 PM
Typically I tend to run through 200-400 in a day of play depending upon what fields we play...However, I never have had a pod pack before so likely I was even more conservative because I didn't have any reserves...But I just got my first so I am waiting to see how much that changes in my next couple of outings...

Every time I play it's always one shot one kill so I use about 25 to 30 paintballs a day. I've had the same case of paint for about two years now. You guys need to practice more!!!

Play on a 20'x20' field?? =p

I have a case of Heat I bought last October and that stuff looks like rejected golfballs...Only consistent thing about the shots while goofing off with it is that no two shots are likely to hit the same tree =p

(I am guessing you are being a wiseguy, but I figured someone needed to take the bait ;-) )
