Anyone ever try to math out their maximum guaranteed hit range? I was really, really bored this week, so I referenced Mann's barrel test for accuracy numbers, measured my own frontal profile, found the sweet spot, being the square made your the widest point on your body, and equal length up and down. Mine starts at my collarbone, spans the width of my chest, and goes down an equal amount, making an 11" square. Aim for the center of that general area, and you have the most room possible for deviation in the ball's path.

Smart Parts Freak barrel was found to hit 75% of shots in the 6"x 6" at 20m. My frontal profile is 11"x 11". My math came out saying that I could be roughly 35m away, before shots had a statistically relevant chance of missing.

Also, as a side note, the math also came out to say the ball would drop roughly 9" at 20m, a more reasonable range, though I neglected air resistance.

Did I mess up the math, or does it seem pretty reasonable?

Like Ghost Leader said, going up the sides isn't always the best strategy. I've gone up the middle many a times to be victorious.

The sides are also where most teams split their group. ( Half on one side, half on the other, a few up the middle )

OR

They go to all one side. If that just so happens to you while your working your way up the side, it wouldn't be too good for you.

The longer out the shot range, the greater the degree your figures will be 'off' due to air resistance. A paintball has terrible aerodynamics.
