Nelson Paint ? Zap?

I have been reading through most of the threads to find out about paint and one or two kinds keep popping up, but I'd rather not pay the extra shipping involved with this.We have a Nelson paint store located near by and I'm wondering how thier Hotspot paint is. The local Dunham's also carries Annihilation paint. I just got my son a new 98c for x-mas and figure he'llwant to shoot x-mas morning..I live in the Northern U.P so it will be cold________ 9* this morning.

Ps thanks to all answering my previos ??? I decided to go CO2..

I only used two kinds of paint from Nelson. HotSpot and their Precision Paint. I have to say I liked the Precision better, I had 1 break out of using 1,000 paintballs in one game. And even with little dimples in the Precision paint, it still went straight forward. Still as accurate as the non dimpled ones. With the hotspot I had roughly 3-5 breaks after using 1,000. But after shooting a few more rounds, my barrel was clean (using J&J Ceramic Barrel). I don't have any experience with the Annihilation paint.

Thanks, I saw a video on the net that I can't find now,This guy had a bag full of balls put this gun on them which read thier temp was around 16 degrees. He dropped a few on the ground and they broke like eggs. Then he shot a full hopper of of his gun without one breaking.Pretty cool, but I can't find or remember which place I found it. With the limited place toget balls I'll probably go with the Precision ones..Thanks again

Also, I'd also adjust the velocity while using them. I wasn't able to Chrono mine since I wasn't at a public field when playing with them. The only think you have to watch for is if its too high it will chop them like crazy and thats the only reason why that 1 broke in my barrel, because my vel. was all the way up, I didn't check before I started playing.

I don't have a chrono either,what are most guns generally set at? tippman's..Friend of mine suggested that I get a chrono,since my son and his bud's will be playing at the farm.Don't want anyone with a unfair advantage.

Generally right under 300 is the rule. 280 or so to allow for random spikes.
A couple fields limited them at 250 where im at.
