1) Airsoft999, where the FUCK did you get those ranges from?? 16" of brass getting 185-206' ??? what gun? We're talking about a SF here, so stay relevant.
2)Im going to clarify barrel materilas and dart combos for you because im bored.
1/2" PVC - Fits stock mega darts, larami darts, and homemade 5/8" stefans
Brass/copper/ .5" CPVC - fits stock micro darts, homemade 1/2" stefans.
now 1/2" PVC is also big enough to fit an entire stock micro dart inside. that means teh rubber tip at all, but isnt always the best fit.
Going with brass/copper/CPVC for micros will get you more range than PVC and megas simply because the with PVC and megas the darts are bigger with a loose fit. With brass/copper/CPVC the darts are smaller with a tight fit so you get mroe power and range. This is all assuming youre using stefans, not stock ammo. The range and performance of stefans is ALOT better than stock.
What you HAVE to do is buy your Foam Backer Rod first, and make a few darts. Then take a dart with you and test out different barrel materials for the best fit. You can ONLY use what fits YOUR darts.
If you have a Lowe's near you, get your 1/2" FBR from their. That brand FBR fits 1/2" CPVC very well ( its what I use ). I have two 6" CPVC barrels and im getting 80' flat. I also put on two 1/2" CPVC connectors so I can breach-load.
