Okay, so here's the deal. We have to do a project that we collect our own data for, and I was going to do mine over how many paintballs people use on average during a day of recball.
So just round to the nearest hundred or something for the amount of paintballs you use for:
1 hour of play:
2 hours of play:
3 hours of play:
4 hours of play:
5 hours of play:
6 hours of play:

just total, so like one hour would be like 500 or somethin, then 2 hours would be 1000.
just an example.

1 scenario game, ~7hr game time, ~2200.

only 1 case for that day, ~7hrs at the field and ~6 hrs of game time.
woodsball game, ~200 per hour.
speedball game, ~200 per hour.

this should be about right, depending on how aggressive or conservative, these numbers does go up and down, but i think for average those numbers are correct.

For a walkon, normally about 1700 per day. I won't give the figure in hours, because i'm not on the field all the time, but i'm normally at the site from about 0830 to 1600.

Big game/scenario, between 2000 and 3000, be it one or two days.

I'd estimate I use about 800-1500 paintballs in an average 4-6 hourish day of play.

1000 in a 6 hour day being conservative. (Because of budget constraints.)

1.5-2 cases in a 6 hour day if i were to let loose. (I don't have the money to do this though.)

The #1 thing to realize about paint Grenades, they are NOT meant for woodsball.
No, they are meant to be taken onto the speedball field, and given to the guy going to snake, so then he can kamikaze run to the snake, and just start chucking them across to the other side. Make sure he had at least a dozen when he makes the run though.
