Worst case scenario you can use some crossman 0.20 bbs. They get the job done thogh they'r not the best stuff in the market. Lots of people used to run these bbs when I lived in colombia with no problems whatsoever.

Also on a side note, if you click the Arrow in my signature, it will link you to a similar thread, where I, FOX_111, and CDN_Stalker discussed being a sniper and such

if your talking after shooting them,
silica bbs will stay to the end of time, there made of glass.
styrene bbs about 100 years,
Bio bbs say 4 or 5 weeks, but thats in optimum conditions (full exposure to light air water), maby a year in practical terms, they usually get pressed into the ground.

I know durak didn't say to use Silica BB's or anything, he was just telling you about the different materials but NO! NEVER USE SILICA BB'S. They are for the most part banned at most fields here in the UK (and I assume the rest of Europe).

Apparently they also put extra stress on PTW's and you can seriously damage your PTW if it starts to chop since silicas don't actually shatter without a lot of force whereas standard styrene ones will shatter into "confetti" if the PTW starts to chop the BB's.

As for BIO BB's, in optimum conditions I'd say more like 3 months to degrade. In realistic conditions however probably a year, possibly more and in regular storage conditions you're probably good for a year and a half before you should think about throwing them away. Also it might be a good idea to toss in one of those silica packs or some rice grains to soak up ambient moisture so the BB's don't degrade as much.

In short, stick to the tried and true and go with styrene if playing unless the field stipulates Bios. And only use silica's for target shooting (they shatter glass and can shatter other players goggles resulting in safety issues which is why UK fields ban them from use in game).

I don't want to derail this thread,

but this is false.

Silica BB's WILL NOT shatter ANSI+ eye protection.
