Cheap bb's, walmart crap especially are very likely to: a) be misshapen, which since most barrels only have about 0.05 mm clearance can cause jams. b) have raised seams, which aside from possibly causing jams will also rip the hell out of your hopup rubber. c) aren't as polished as good bbs, which will friction thus wearing out various parts quicker, may cause jams and will cause the bb to slow down in flight much quicker. d) their bubbles will be off-center or diffuse, which will cause the bbs to have a rather erratic flight path if they actually manage to get out of the barrel.
