Question crosman bbs

Me and my friends get together a lot to play airsoft in a field/cqb playing area.
We go through one hell of a lot bbs and because im the one who supplies all of them it gets quite expensive ( were using G&G bbs ). So I needed to buy cheap bbs and Crosman bbs are cheap but I dont know whether or not they will jam are guns. Im putting this in the noob tank because it is kind of a noob question.

If you know anything about crosman bbs tell me.

Thanks.

Crosman bb's are .12 grams. They are the lightest bbs available. They will be greatly affected by wind and have little ro no accuracy and range. At the very least you want to be using .20 gram bbs. May I ask why it is up to you to pay for all the bbs?

So then don't play with them. And Crosman bbs are cheaply made are not uniform size and may/will ruin your inner barrel. I only use them in my nades. Stay away from them. And when you say alot of bb's how many is alot?

Friends who aren't willing to pitch in aren't really friends or just really bad friends. When someone covers me for something like food or gas whatever it is. I always make sure to remember to cover them or pay them back. No exceptions to that for me.

Just remember. The cheaper the cost, the cheaper the quality (in most cases).

Thanks for telling me. I will continue to play with them but this time I will make the bring bbs so I wont be the only one. So no bbs no play. Also you asked how much is alot. I but about 20,000 bbs and we play every 2 weeks. That should give you a ruff idea.

Where would I get inexpensive bbs. I have been buying them from velocity arms in toronto.

I am sorry 20,000 bbs for 2 games my mistake to everyone who is reading this thread.
Also On my last post I said that I but about 20,000 bbs. I meant to say: I bought 20,000 bbs.

Sorry everyone.

Bastard BB's are inexpensive quality BB's. $10 for 2000 .2 and .25's.

.25's should be the minimum weight for outdoors.

.28 and .3's are better.

Don't get sucked into suppling your so called buddies and friends. If they can't buy their own, let them run around with no ammo while you shoot them!

WTF!!! 20,000 bb's for a game is a retarded amount. I shoot alot because I believe in covering fire and I go through maybe 1000 bbs a game. Hell when I run my M249 I go through about 2000-2500. Just how many friends are playing that use 20,000 bbs at a game?

Here ya go, inexpensive not entirely shit BBs for a decent amount.

Amazon.com: TSD Competition Grade 6mm plastic airsoft BBs, 0.20g, 5000 rds, white: Sports & Outdoors

You may not wish to order from amazon so I would suggest shopping around online and finding other retailers.
