How Far Do First Strike Paintball Rounds Travel?


Over the years in the paintball industry, there was never a true sniper within the game, and there were several gimmicks that try to achieve longer distances for a paintball round. Most paintballs travel around 100 – 200 feet, but varies on the type of barrel, paint grade, or velocity. Now, the First Strike rounds utilizes a combination of an aerodynamic shape and fins stabilizing technology that maintains the velocity over a longer distance than a traditional paintball. The consistent results typically achieve twice the distance and 25 percent more accuracy compared to traditional paintballs. For example, a First Strike shot at 300 FPS can achieve 400 feet of distance and the self-rifling maintains accuracy.
