When using this barrel with any of the three stock sizers it always spins the ball within 10 ft. What is causing this??

Yes, but they shouldn't be curving to the left or right. It has zero accuracy right now. I wonder if it's the type of paint I use

It sounds like you may have bad paint, your barrel is dirty, or are shooting hot.   Check your paint, barrel, and velocity.   Maybe a bad paint match.   Try fitting the paint too.

No those are just some of the typical things that you may want to check over.

Is the porting rifled or does the barrel have grooves?

Another thing to consider is a damaged or defective barrel.   One time I was given a barrel kit to run some efficiency tests etc. And the barrel backs were out of round.
