First Strike rounds are a .68 caliber projectile that use a unique stabilization fin and an aerodynamic shape to give you a paintball that is 25 times more accurate than other paintball brands. Paintball barrels don't have rifling, because traditonal paintballs are smooth spheres. These unique paintballs have their own rifling, giving the projectile extra spin as it exits the barrel to maintain its trajectory. The projectile's unique design enables you to make shots up to twice as far away.
They are also made of a polystyrene shell, which is hardier than the usual gelatin used in most paintballs. This means it won't break until its supposed to.
Because these projectiles must be fed into the barrel a certain way, they aren't compatible with traditional loaders. You can manually feed them into the breach, but the markers listed here all have a magazine feed or otherwise accommodate the paintball.
Thanks to this new projectile's increased range and accuracy, you finally can be a true paintball sniper!
