Most likely he is buying extremely cheap paint (like walmart or white box).
although i cannot truly reveal the true cost of making paint (and believe me it changes every day depending on the market value of ingredients needed), I can tell you if you are getting paint for only $40, you are getting a very good deal, and whoever is selling it to you is not making a lot money off that....
Cheapest case at my field (for paint other than white box) is $55.

Like many extreme sports out there, with paintball comes a liability issue on the field owners and manufacturers part. To cover the cost of insurance and the potential cost for legal cases, companies and fields figure prices to cover them accordingly. Now if everyone promised never to sue, then we'd have a cheaper sport... but since that isn't the case, we are going to have to deal with the higher prices.
Now liability isn't the only cost suppliers and field owners have to cover, they have to take into account that the paintball industry is full of middlemen. Middlemen like National Paintball Supply that cut into the profits. This is the big reason why paintballs are so expensive.
In short, paintballs and field entry fees account for most of the profit field owners bring in, and those will only go up if they cannot make as much money selling equipment because of the amount of competition.

No such thing as GOOD paint for $40 bucks unless you are sponsored.
