Last weekend we played at the UWL North American Championships. We played in the skills division. Desert Edge used .50 cal spyders almost exclusively for this division. In the 2 games we played against them I was amazed at the range and ability of .50 cal to get through the trees. I was getting hit all the time while behind bunkers that would have been perfectly safe to be behind had they use .68 cal.

However the paint just wouldnt break unless if his something hard like a hopper or lens. This put DE at a huge disadvantage and forced them to have to shoot what seemed like tons of paint. Just to get 1 to break. I think that 50 cal can only work if the velocity is turned up above 300fps. Or if a new shell is created that wont break in the gun but will break on soft targets AKA players.

And yes I did screw up in the title.
