The energy carried by the projectile is constant over Mass x Velocity regardless of the material. Particularly considering dimensions are also constant.
Getting shot with a glass BB is no different than getting shot with a plastic one of the same size and weight shot at the same speed.
From a physics standpoint all the "issues" with these bbs are unfounded
EDIT: Response got addressed.. whoopsies
Agreed. A tree branch snapping back and hitting you carries and transfers more energy than either type of bb... People wanna play war but don't wanna get a boo-boo? Head back to the Xbox.
On the other hand, stepping on them could possibly be even more unpleasant than with a white BB because you're not expecting it.
