I'll toss in one interesting fact regarding different BB weights................. there is a distinctive pitch change the heavier you go. Is something that Testie pointed out in my basement when we were testing (i'd shoot and call out, he'd write down) but he noticed a more of a thud with heavier weights as opposed to the thwack with lighter ones. Is something I noticed years ago when I started loading the first dozen rounds of a mag with red 0.12g BBs (reminds me, I need to buy more), then fill it with either 0.25g or 0.28g. Used that as a low ammo indicator (reduce dry firing of the gun, but also got some surprise kills with them too), not only see the red BBs overhopping, but the sound of the gun firing changed to a higher pitch as well.
