In Topic: First strike rifled barrel test

Makes me wish I hadn't traded away my Hammerhead barrel for my modded TPX :(

Do you think a seven inch barrel would even be long enough to impart spin on the FirstStrike rounds?

In Topic: Control Bore Length or Bore Size

optimal for each:

bore - .003-.005 underbore
length - 14-16"
control bore length - about 9-11" depending on gun

Does a lack of porting for those last few inches have a negative impact on consistency or accuracy?

I'm looking at purchasing a two custom single piece 14" barrels with .682 and .685 bores without porting to go along with my .679.

Yes, I am having my stock TiPX barrels bored and bolts milled. Why do you say a tighter fit is better than a smaller/lighter bolt. Any statistical evidence you can link to, or just personal experience? If a tighter fit is more important how tight are we talking about? Within .005?

Depends on the gun.

How about the Tippmann TiPX? I am having the stock bolts milled to fit freak inserts. Would smaller/lighter be better, or would matching the size(slightly smaller of course) of the insert be better?
