BB question

Ok so im kinda new with all this, but ive been reading and they have all the diff sizes for the riffles.

My rifle came with 20g bb's. Now my question is, i read that for better accuracy and range the 25g + up bbs work better. but will they fit? im saying are they bigger or just weigh more? lol and what do you recommend and why..

I have an ICS CXP08


Cheers.

all BB's are the same size, different weights = different density.

For under 330 FPS I'd suggest BB Bastard .25 BB's, for over 330 FPS up til 410 FPS I'd suggest BB Bastard .28's, past 410 FPS I'd suggest BB Bastard .30's

(All FPS Readings are based on what the gun chronos with on .20)

Ok thanks alot.. i think mine is 385fps.. and im using 20g bb's. the thing i noticed im not sure if everyones does that but some rounds go up or down and the rest straight. i just got the gun so not sure, if something needs to be tweeked on it or something else.

The BB's it came with are probably really bad.

Get some BB Bastard .28 BB's and see if that fixes the "flier" problem.

You might want to read up on hop-up adjustment if they are consistently going up or down.
