Its going to be a large bore barrel. It will probably be around the .690 range. Since they don't provide a specific bore size with their barrels it can vary a little bit from barrel to barrel.

Any large bore paint will do. I personally like Karnage brand paint - it's relatively inexpensive and they're excellent quality. It's really hard to recommend a specific brand of paint since it will vary not only from batch to batch, but depending on the temperature and humidity you play in. This chart should help - it's far from precise, but it gets you in the ball park which is all you really need.

I wouldn't worry about getting a perfect paint-barrel match. A lot of people get way too concerned about that. As long as you're somewhat close (within .005) you won't notice any difference in performance. It's not the end of the world if paint rolls through the barrel. In many cases people overbore on purpose to avoid breaking paint.

I use RPS Bigball and they have worked quite good for me, but for economical reasons im moving to Draxxus Triumph cause i can get em for like $35 a case and they shoot well out of my SP linear, not quite as good as big ball but damn close.
