Materials cost is the issue that I see. You could make BB's in the 0.5-2.0g range but the cost of manufacture and the materials are going to be rather high, and then there is the issue of field owners allowing those BB's to be left behind on there property.

There was quite a bit of resistance from a field owner with having aluminum BB's left behind on his property and in the end he just gave up and didn't care since there was so much lead left behind from pellet guns and recreational shooting.

For Hardball play .43 is probably too light for 2/3 of the guns. If we hardball players where willing to drop 100-150 FPS than .43 is quite adaquete
