Tiberius First Strike Accuracy Test 75' test

You guys are hilarious, but keep it up. The amount of "intelligence" flying around in here is amazing.
This should be a very big compliment coming from a guy whos wife is currently getting her PhD in organic chemistry. lol
one thing though, for us dumb people, you guys should totally put this shit in % (when your all done testing) if it is possible.
I mean a SD of blah blah blah is hard for me to understand (although my wife tries to explain it to me).
the FS round is 30% more accurate at 150' then normal paintballs is alot easier to understand lol.
leep up the good work!

I'll get together with CockerPunk in a couple weeks - one of the things I want to talk about is how to present and compile our data better. We'll get there.
But, part of the reason that I didn't do a number for how much better these guys did or didn't shoot was that the sample size was WAY too small to do that and call it a good number. I need 30-50 more shots at a couple of ranges then I can give you an answer like you're asking for.
Oh, and to read the stuff in PunkWorks you're going to need to know Standard Deviation. It's becoming pretty much the basis for much of our testing.
Think of standard deviation as a range - so if the SD of a particular test is 2.5 - then 1 standard deviation is 2.5 units across. Standard deviation is a number calculated to predict every event that ever happens under those circumstances - so if the SD is 2.5 - then 68% of the events ever tested on that setup will be between 0 and 2.5 units.
95% will be within 2xSD - or, in this case 5.
Is that making sense?
