I'm waiting on my high volume poppet valve.  I think that's the way to
go.  I haven't had much success with the sprinkler valve.  With a stanard
poppet and high volume hose, I can fire almost 100 feet - hard for the
first 30-40 feet.  I'm hoping the high volume valve will inscrease that
to 50 feet.  Even with high volume and high pressure, the .40 caliber
paintballs drop fast.  I guess they don't have the mass like the .68
caliber ones.  I saw your setup on the website.  It's nice, but the
"splatomatic" selector is much smaller.  The whole assembly fits inside
the M8's turret.  In the M5, I have lots of extra space.  In the next
week or so I'll send photos to Frank.
