I m not a specialist of guns or aerodynamic system thatís why I want your opinion
Correct me if I Ďm wrong, but could a conical bulllet keep her speed much longer and by consequence go further?
Does the gain in drag effect will compensate the hop up effect? That also mean the BB will hit his target faster at 100 feet for exemple instead of having this current situation of people avoiding slow BB because of the hop up, just doing one step aside.
With still the round tip of the bullet (more like the real 9 mm) I guess we still keeping a low penetration effect (trough skin) and stay safe.
You add the twisted barrel like the real one can also improve the aerodynamic, if Iím right.

What do you think ? Could it be the next generation of BB for real cap?

You're wrong.. the issue is the weight of the projectile .. and the safe velocity limitation for shooting people.

The only way to solve these problems is a spherical projectile and backspin.

If you Don't want people sidestepping.. wait till you are closer to shoot them..

I have not seen someone sidestep a bb shot within 10 feet.
