In Topic: HammerHead High Speed and Range Testing

There was enough footage to determine that even when there did appear to be a nonzero spin, it was of a small magnitude and was not consistent.

Furthermore, the accuracy test suggests there is no funny business going on (not to mention that one wouldn't expect axial spins to affect sphere accuracy from a theoretical standpoint)


when i shot the apex, every single shot looked almost identical, all with wicked spin, in the same direction and of similar magnitude. i merely had to find a shot that was very nicely in focus to put in the video. i shot the apex over 40 times under the camera, and there was not a single shot that didn't spin a substantial, and predictable and repeatable way.

on this test i saw nothing more then the slight spins that you can also observe with smooth barrels. yes, even smooth barrels have some spin, nothing large, and nothing predictable or repeatable, but there is some spin. an NO spin the "axial" direction, as rifling should produce.

idk, the idea that the hammer head puts spin on paintballs is pretty debunked IMO. but that doesn't mean rifling can't put spin on the ball. with a small bore barrel with rifling that really grabs the paintball, i bet you could do it. now, as snipez pointed out, its debatable whether that will actually help anything or not.

In order to grip the paintball enough to put a rifle-esque spin on it the entire barrel would have to be in constant contact until it left the barrel. currently the riffled barrel could produce the desired spin, but only if everything was sized exactly right, and paint just isn't consistent enough to machine a corrisponding riffled barrel. I figure, if you want supreme accuracy, go with a first strike round, thats the only mod that seems to actually work in terms of Axial paint spin.

I gotta pull a couple automags that I have out of storage

I have one with the black box on the side of it

and I have another one with the smart parts half moon milled into the valve

can you post pictures of your automags?

it's bolt action? that would be perfect for the new tiberius rounds!

Tiberius ought to partner with tippmann to get these rounds in the market, and heavily used. I think a drum mag mod for an A-5 would work phenominally... mostly because it's breech is on the side, like warp right body, rather than in the grip itself, or on top like most guns.

If they made a Warpfeed-esque drum that fit where the forgrip is, or evan a modded longbow type mag; Tiberius would boost thier sales exponentially...
I think they'd make alot more money selling these rounds to a bunch of people, rather than selling a few guns that work with the rounds, to a few people.

I wan't to know where trippleripper picked his up for tat cheap.

the only place I found that sells E-mags except for the occational auction, is tunamart.... and it is soooooooo expensive. It will take longer, but I defnatly want to go for the mag once I get all the dough together.
