ok, i know this is probabaly on here somewhere but i can seem to find it. how do i get my 98 custom to choot more accurate. i alays get out because people charge me kenowing i cant hit the broadside of a barn with my gun. i am good with other guns and i know it is not me. becasue i can see the ball curve way off course after leavin the barrel. i already have a longer barrel on it but it dosent change the accuracy. what should i do?

Oh god.

First of all, what barrel do you have? What paint? Does the paint match the barrel? Is the paint dimpled? How long is the barrel? What velocity are you at? Gun setup, air source, etc.

We need to know these things.

Well it is probally becuase of the barrel , my suggestion would be to get a Lapco bigshot or some kind of J&J.  If you put a ball in the barrel and it roles right through it is to small , If you put a ball and the barrel and it gets stuck and you have to push it out with something it is to big.  If you can blow the ball out of the barrel it is fine.  hope this helped.

paint to barrel match has nothing to do with accuracy

i read in an article somewhere that paint to barrel match doesn't matter on the accuracy.  the guy who wrote it said he used the same gun, same velocity, same barrel, new balls, pretty much like a scientific expirement.  he said whether the ball rolls through or it gets slightly stuck, both balls will create a seal in the barrel having the same accuracy. the only difference between sizes is that a ball that gets slightly stuck in the barrel will have slightly less velocity and distance than a ball that rolls through because there is more friction between the barrel and the ball.  my friends and i agree with it because we dont notice any difference either.

Before I completely own you, if the ball rolls out, how does it create a seal. If it has room to roll that means theres room between the top of the ball and the top of the barrel. If theres room, air will get by it. That means theres no seal.

well i checked my paint in my barrel and the ball wont roll through but i can blow it out...so i guess that is good. i also turned down my velocity and it helps...alot. i dont have anything to measure how fast it is going. how far in or out should my velocity screw be if im playin woods ball at distances up to about 25 yards?

No cut and dry answer, unfortunately. Every gun is different.

The only way to tell is with a chronograph.

your local paintball shop should chrono your gun for minimal cost (most will do it for free) paint is very important if you are using cheap paint sometimes it looks and acts like it is a good match to your barrel but this may be because it's out of round or bulged out, put a ball in your barrel and look through it toward a light if you see alot of light arround the ball or uneven light it's bad paint
