Why Can't I Properly Shoot Reballs at 220fps?

Is there a way to fix my gun so that shooting reballs at 220fps is more consistent and without any problems? Every time I shoot, a few come out just fine then about 5 roll out of the barrel.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It depends on what you mean by rolling out of the barrel. If the balls are just leaving at a much lower velocity, check your tank and make sure it’s full. If not, try getting a smaller bore barrel. The stock Etha barrel bores out at a huge .693, which is large for regular paintballs. Reballs tend to be much smaller, so they don’t fit as well into the stock barrels. Try something with a .685 or even a .683 bore and it should fix the problem.

Another thing you could try is turning the velocity up. The lack of pressure combined with the small barrel bore can cause huge drops in muzzle velocity.

If you mean that when you point the gun down, balls are literally rolling out of the barrel, it’s an issue with your detents. Take off the eye covers (look here if you need help with that), then inspect the rubber detent on each side. Replace them if you see any damage.
