Paintballs may all look similar, but you need to understand the differences for the best gaming experience. Most paintballs are constructed the same way. Paintballs consist of a gelatin coating with a water-based paint on the interior. The gelatin breaks when it strikes an object, releasing the paint. Paintballs are available in different sizes to fit different guns. Paintball sizes are measured to match the diameter of the paintball gun barrel you’re using. The .50-caliber paintballs are a common small size, while .72-caliber is a common large size. You also can choose the color of the paintball you want to use. During team play, you may want to make sure all team members have the same color, for example. The exterior color of the paintball usually matches the color of paint inside.
