Paintball pellets are an inseparable part of PAINTBALL. These are the pellets that the markers (paintball guns) throw out under the influence of the force created by compressed air or CO2 or some kind of spring. A paintball ball consists of a membrane and an inner filling. Both the membrane and the filling (content) are harmless to humans because they consist mainly of cellulose. The membrane usually comes in one or two colors, and the ones used for competitions can be colorful.
Paintball pellets can be divided into several categories:
1. In terms of caliber (size) – .68″ is the original ball size that is still widely used; the .50″ is a newer model, it is smaller in size with a similar effect and more economical in terms of the amount of material used and storage space
2. In terms of hardness for different seasons – different temperatures, so we have the harder ones for winter and the softer ones for summer
3. In terms of quality – we have rental and competitive ones
At our paintball club, we use pellets exclusively made in Europe and for the European market. The pellets are of excellent quality and are intended for renting. These are pellets which do not burst in the barrel, are very accurate and in most cases burst when they hit the player.
Let’s explain right away what are competition pellets are why they are better than rental pellets, but they are not intended for use with rental rifles because very, very often they shoot in the magazine and/or barrels, which can ruin the game, because when this happens, players cannot regularly resume their game.
