Not to get too off topic but, what might be the ratio difference in velocities comparing paintballs to reballs? I mean, if I were shooting paintballs at a certain velocity what would be an average difference in the lowered velocity of the reballs? -

I'd definitely bet there'd be a difference as the mases are different... one has a hard shell with liquid inside it, and the other is foam covered rubber. Moving mass vs fixed. I'd be interested as well in those test results!

Looks good Taco, but I'd have to agree... rip one of those PVC pipes in half and run a ramp down to where you're shooting from!

Looks great! Very creative - if it weren't so big, I'd make one to save painting my fence and hitting neighbor kids peeking through....

Only thing I would say could be different is if inside your bucket you could try to rig your pods so they would fill as your shooting....maybe get one of those tray type loaders that all the balls automatically roll into the pods when you dump them in.

Not bad. I think I saw 3 balls escape with the entire video. (Not including the ones you dropped when trying to reload your pods)

Like what Viking said, you can rig your pods inside the bucket to fill up as the balls fall. (Oil funnel maybe?)

just make seperators to place the pods into the bucket, and put some of that canvas drooping down so it goes around the bucket to prevent bounce outs, the pods should fill, and if the canvas slides around the bucket with ease you are all set on putting it under and taking it back out...
