I believe it's around a 685. I know in Oklahoma we still bore at a .689.

I rock a .685 on my pump and I've never had a rollout or any issues. I shoot a lot of premium and it normally bores pretty big

Its been a while since I've played paint here in texas, but I remember my .682 was barely underbored last October. After that I never bothered checking because I was using my stock shaft three .693 barrel. I don't really worry that much about paint bore anymore. Other than consistency, and roll outs with my pump, there is almost no good reason to worry about about it. my .693 freak barrel will shoot just as accurate as my dye ultralight I'm getting.

I'm in east Texas and have been shooting premium gold. I haven't tried a bore sizer but my team mates are using ~.685 freak inserts with some rolling out.
