Hey guys,

What is the best way to get a straighter shot out of my RSX?

It shoots with a curve at this point and it kills the range and accuracy of the gun.

My PSI is at 275 and my velocity is maxed out. Or did I turn the velocity the wrong way...?

what do you mean your velocity is maxed out?

The fixture, in which you adjust it is turned all the way and my PSI is at 275.

It shots balls that turn left and right sometimes and it the balls always go up and down.

Just wondering if there is a way to get a straight shot, which is more accurate.

Are you using an aftermarket barrel or barrel kit?

And have you chronographed your gun to 300 fps?

I would suggest matching your paint to your barrel. You can do this buy either getting a barrel kit or by trying different paint till you find one you like.

1. Stock barrel..

2. I don't have it chroned, just played with it myself, I'm sure it is probably wrong.

I'd get it chrony'd to >300 fps and check your paint match. The only thing that really affects accuracy is the paint/bore match. Though if you're on CO2 you'll wind up with wild shots from time to time as well.

If you have your velocity maxed, it could be shooting all the way up to 400+ fps. paintballs weren't really designed to hold up to that kind of acceleration. They become very flattened out and misshapen on their way out.

Picture a knuckleball from a good pitcher. That's the effect a paintball has when leaving the barrel (unless you have a flatline, or apex system). At higher velocities the effect is multiplied, and much more noticable.

I've noticed that when messing around and cranking my gun up stupid fast, that i loose all accuracy.
