Paintball Fit in Barrel

How loose/tight should paintballs be inside of the paintball barrel? I just played a paintball tourny with 400+ people and noticed my barrel always had burst paintballs in it and its shots were never consistent. After the Tourny I tried putting a paintball in it and they just rolled right out of it.

So what is a good way to measure how tight/loose paintballs you buy from the store should be?

Well, you can buy a Barrel Kit, such as Freak, Evil Pipe, or MatchStik kits.

And/Or you can buy a Ball Bore Sizer, as seen here:

Ok, buying a new barrel would help me figure out the best paintball size in my current barrel how...?

I do not want to buy anything, I just want a physical way to measure if a paintball is the right fit for my barrel.

If the paintball rolls right out your barrel, than your barrel is too big

If your paint can't be gently blown out, than your barrel is too small

Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.
