For the last month I have been looking for the perfect snipping barrel for shooting a paintball. I have talked to a bunch of guys and they say that the longer the barrel the more accurate it will be but you lose range. They tell me to get something like a 14" instead of something like a 23". So here is the question... If you have a 14" barrel that shoots a paintball at 250 fps and a 23" barrel that shoots a paintball at 250 fps why would the 23" not shoot as far as the 14"??? The fps is measured when the ball exits the barrel so you would need to adjust the pressure depending on what barrel you have to make sure the ball exits the barrels at the same speed. The 23" has more friction and you will end up using more co2 but I don't see why you would lose distance. If you could help me it would be much appreciated!!! THANKS !
