Curving Paint

What causes your paint to curve when it shoots out of your barrel. Is it ths size of your paint to the bore size of your barrel? Or is it that the paint is messed up? Or are there any other reasons?

it would be the paint to barrel match (size). a ball broken in the barrel could do it too.

Sometimes it could be that the paint is all settled on one side of the paintball so it curves a little when you shoot.

Or it could be that paintballs aren't very accurate, even if you do have a good match. Do you mean it curves off right as it leaves the barrel or about 20 - 30 yards away?

If it happens just as the ball leaves the barrel, see above posts... but if it curves off later, it's the curse of the liquid filled projectile.

Hey, what gun are you shooting and what kind of paint. Wet paint is the most common cause of curving for a lot of players. NOT ALL PLAYERS mind you flamers... There could be moisture in your barrel or breech from a chopped or leaky ball. Or there could be a leaky ball in your hopper, therefore ruining ALL the balls in your hopper. In that case you need to wash out your hopper and dry it as well as your barrel and wipe your breech clean as well. Use at least mid-grade paint and you won't have as much problem with this. Also note that pro tourney paint has thinner shell and is much more prone to breaking when you shoot unless you have a gun that handles the balls gently. You probably should not be using the pro paint w/o a nice barrel, Compressed Air, and a good motorized hopper. If my comments were not helpful let me know and I will reduce the amount of text that I post.

Thanks, these things helped. I am pretty sure it was my paint because when i tried to do the blow test, the paint rolled rite out of the barrel. I think that is the reason.
