This is usually about the point, well actually this is usually well beyond the point, at which I say Punkworks and cockerpunk in particular overstated the data. But I have learned that this is a lost cause. This is also why I would probably never send something to them to test that would not 100% guaranteed return unmissable results vs existing equipment.
I have noticed over time that there's nothing punkworks likes more than to be paradigm-breaking, and to create new paradigms which they are then loath to see broken. So if you are talking about shades of grey, especially really really fine shades of grey like barrels have, you risk running afoul of their disdain for the pedestrian or worse yet, their defensiveness of the paradigms they have created. In these situations, IMO there is no benefit to punkworks testing other than as an attempt to get free advertising. And in that case, you live and die by the sword.
FWIW I shoot tournament quality paint every weekend if I can help it (ultra evil). It would be interesting to me if a barrel shot those balls better than others. Trouble is even tournament quality paint isn't always all that round.
