So over the last year I build a custom bolt action out of an old spyder compact. Long story short I Milled a slot to fit FS rounds into the breach. I already have a CP 16 in 2pc barrel, so I figured to save money I would just buy a CP barrel back with spyder thread and still use my 16in tip. I am planning on getting a .682 because I have no detents, and.682 is under bore enough to still be able to use regular paintballs.... but im afraid .682 may be to small for the FS rounds... what do you guys think?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

I think you don't want to go any smaller than a .684 at the most with the FS rounds. The rifled barrel Tiberius worked on with Lapco is .683, and that's specifically smaller than the round to engage the rifling. Basically, you'll want something larger than the round to use them most effectively.
