True. However I have seen some paintball companies that have designed very accurate paintballs that are hitting with amazing accuracy at 300 feet with only ~270fps. So it wouldn't be a huge stretch that our rounds only slightly smaller (than theirs, larger than standard) and not filled with paint would be lighter and able to achieve similar results while still being able to remain within the joule limit, and definitely feasible in other areas where the limits are higher.inthetallgrass said:It would require a lot more force to propel it. It would then have to go over the joule limits set by fields.
As far as the accuracy of 8mm rounds, I don't see why they would be any less accurate, other factors ignored (Manufacturing error, lack of supply etc.); they would only be limited by the fact that they are still just spheres.
I have temporarially decided to put most of my project on hold until I can build a rig to test some of the BB and barrel ideas that have been floating around recently.
