Hand loading the rounds into the scar mags seemed to work fine with no ill results.

I'm no expert by any means on anything airsoft related but something about these rounds just feels off. They seem to be of a very low quality and I'd be more inclined to pump walmart airsoft rounds through my gun before I continue using these.
The WE SCAR tube speedloader is horrible for loading bb's I've had trouble with other brands being loaded in with them, the design puts ALOT of stress on the bb's as they are loaded. The WE's follower spring being so stiff doesn't help either.

Actually, they are more expensive than Bastards. When you buy Bastards from your local rep, you don't pay taxes. Armist are 0,50$ cheaper than bastards per bag, but when you factor in taxes, they are actually more expensive for something that is lower quality (2x 4,75$ = 9,50$ vs 10$ for 0.20g Bastards, they are bags of 1000 instead of 2000).

I can't speak for anyone else but I sell them at a flat $5 for 0.20's and 0.25's (same price as Bastards) and $6 for 0.28 (cheaper than Bastards)

Well i had the chance to pick some of those up last week while i was near Montreal ( I was at Mt.Tremblant) and i had the chance to test these out in my RS Type 97B today and well...I was FAR from impressed. My RS usually fire .30 Bastards but i figured i'd give these .28 a try which was a big mistake. They fed okay for the first few rounds but then it started to jam a lot and they started to shatter in the barrel causing me to shot fragments and clogging my barrel. Had the same result in my WA pistols and i now hold them in the same regard as M-something variants, as garbage. These are nowhere NEAR the quality of BBB's, i'd sooner use madbulls over these.

These BBS are absolute SHIT, and I really hope that they get taken off the market, I would rather use .12's then this shit. They jammed and fucked up in all of my guns.

I've fired a full mag in 1 burst from my TM P90 without a single problem. Same from my M4 (TM MAG HICAP) without problem. I found that they shattered against my backstop so I wouldnt shoot them ever again.

Actually you do, its just embedded in the price you're paying at the field. Making change would be almost impossible in those circumstances. But, good point.

That's why we love you Jay.
No fuss BB purchasing.
No need to add tax.
No need to bring or make change.

Got a chance to try some of these a little while ago.

Was not happy with them at all.
I'd only use them if I had a strong set of lungs and lots of drinking straws.

Misfed, jammed etc.. etc.. All the un-happy joy crap.

Loaded up a midcap & hicap with 'em, just gave me double and triple feeds. It was very random in how they fed in two of my guns.

Totally sticking with Bastards.

Anyone else find random red dots on their BB's when they cracked opened a fresh bag?
Found 2-3 BB's with random red dots

I wish I had seen this thread b4 buying 3000 of the .28's. Even so, I haven't had a problem, they feed quite well in my MP5 midcaps, are consistent... But they do feel, somehow, of lesser quality. I'll go thru them, but I'm switching back to bastards after. I haven't seen any of those red dots. Are they bright red, or faded?
