Smile Any Walmart or Canadian Tire BB's recommended?

I have a new G&G UMG with dry/no firing issues. However, if I use "official" G&G brand BB's it works great
.
I noticed that the G&G bb's are shiny and the other brands I've tried are not(maybe higher friction??). Problem is that the G&G brand is expensive.

Strange that my friends gun: G&G M4 works on the my cheap BB's, but not on my UMG. Why the difference??

Brand that works awesome: G&G .2g? not sure if they are .25

Brand that do not work (dry fire every 2nd round): Billes Biodegradable .2g

Any recommended brands out there?
Also, does Canadian Tire or Walmart sell any bb's are are any good ?
I am in Salmon Arm, BC

Thanks

Crappy tire and wally world BB's are just plain junk, plain and simple.

Find a retailer of BB Bastards, Bioval, Airsoft Elite, etc.

Yeah, unfortunately the Internet is the primary way to get them. Or, if you attend a game, ask if anyone is selling.

DO NOT use any Canadian Tire or Walmart BBs in your gun. They are meant for the crappy clear plastic guns that are sold there.
You have a decent gun that you don't want to ruin with shitty BBs.
A bag of 2000 BBs will easily cost you $15 dollars. That's considerably cheaper than what you'd pay in repairs if a walmart or crappy tire BB shatters inside your gun and lodges itself somewhere.

Look at online stores. You can even buy them in bulk for a cheaper price

OK I know wall mart and canadian tire sell shitty BB's, But at Holesale sports ther is a brand called "black devel". I cant find a review on them, just a lot of seller's. They come in different wieght's.20 .25 .36 .38 .45 ( or close to that wieght's) They look like a quality bb. Any info helps.

Little late to jump in but when I had a GnG M4 it loved the Madbull BBs. But BB bastards are top notch as well.

Green Devils from Bent Barrel Airsoft... Used them exclusively for over a year now. At least 30000 rounds fired. I use G&P midcaps in my Real Sword Type 56... Nothing but smooth feeding and straight shooting... Plus they are biodegradable.

Also don't excessively dry fire your gun. Prolonged dry firing is bad for your internals.

I got 5 bags of these from Bent Barrel. Great prices and the shipping cost was awesome.
I have run through 2 bags of them so far with no issues. They are the best I have used. Highly recommend them.
