either a) get a gun that can outshoot your hopper, and figure out what bps your hopper can feed to b4 you start to chop, or b) read the package...

Here's what you do:
Fill the hopper with an exact number of balls. Make sure you know how many there are in there. Then, turn the hopper on its fastest setting and let them all fall back into the bag of paintballs. Use a stopwatch to time how long it takes for them all to drop. Then use this equation:

[# of balls in hopper] / [# of seconds to empty hopper] = BPS.

Simple enough, right?

shake the egg while your doing it because some of the balls get stuck in the front
so youll get an accurate bps
