Depends on initial quality of paint, and temperature it is stored at.

Max, 6-10 months. Eventually it'll just go bad on it's own.

I just used year old midnight paint that I have kept at about 70 degrees F. No dimples or barrel breaks, I probably could have waited longer to use it I wanted to. Just keep it in a sealed, dry container at room temperature and they should be fine for a while.

I got a case of paint today that didnt even have a name. It was 5 years old. Came home, and my brother shot 7 pods out of his G6R. Everyone makes a big deal about the date of paint but really it lasts forever.

Sounds like monsterball....

Paint is more or less a "food" product. Just because you can shoot it out of a marker doesn't mean it's good paint. I used some very very old and poorly taken care of paint (I was in college, don't blame me). My chrono readings were bouncing from 230 to 310.

It was poorly taken care of, thats why. If you store the paint properly and rotate it every so often it can last years.

The evil I used recently wasn't stored properly so it was the shittiest paint I had ever dealt with. And it was maybe a couple weeks old. But I only paid $28 for the case so I don't care.
