Bastards
for .28, if you want absolute accuracy for plinking u can use silicas, but most fields ban them for play

Can you please define "best"

due to fact that I mainly use GBBRS, my "best" would be something thats a heavier weight, and have a finish that can take about 10-20 pounds of force smashing against it.

therefor my "best" would be BB bastard .28 silica for plinking and gaming I would use madbull .28 on my on my GBBRS with a barrel length under 300mm, anything more than 300mm i'd use .3

asking what is the "best" bb for your use really depends on how you game, and what gun you use and what hop up rubber and etc

99% of the people on this forum will have an opinion on this question but in all reality theres probably 3-4+ top end BB's. such as Madbulls, GreenDevils, Bastards ect. sorry if i didn't name your favourite. Find the weight suited for your FPS and where you play and pick from one of these companies. buy a bag of each and find out which you THINK are thr best...i've used Bastards and green devils and i believe bastards are the one for me

Green Devil Bio BBs are all I have used the past 2 years. Zero issues in multiple AEGs and mags.

Used to use BBBastards before going the biodegradable route.

Started with bastards. Went with madbull last season. This year it is all about the bioshot. Best bios I have found. No issues what so ever.

But as said above its all about what you shoot, where you play and how you feel that makes a bb right for you. Most folks will have their own ideas about the best bb. Cause its the best for them.

Bio, or otherwise.


Next I'd say Green Devil bios

Elite Force.

I have seen enough side by side comparison and seen first hand. ICS, Bastard, Madbull you name it.


Not sure if it has to do with bottle vs bag, but from people I know in the pharmaceutical packaging industry bottles are far superior to bag for preservation of product.

Then you add in the quality of the product itself.

I have issued hundreds of bottles of .28 bios now. Not one person has said a peep to me other than, "do you have more".


And they make a .32 G bio

http://www.eliteforceguns.com/Produc...Force-Bio-BBs/



Note they are .5.95 mm.

not 5.98 or higher

All BBs are made with Plastic Injection Molding machines. Husky and Engel are the top end. These are moulds that are made with thousands of cavities of the bb. Like a giant ice cube tray.

The Mold is made with EDM. (Electro discharge machining) electodes which burn the half sphere into the half mold. Electrode is either graphite of copper. Don't get me going on that. Big difference.

The mold is then polished to get the master. Keep in mind a plant will have dozens of injection molding machines AND MOLDS.

The seam is present when the bb's comes out. So to get this is out, they are put into a vibratory finishing process. Giant hopper with a polishing media slurry. Dozes of them.

Here is where it goes for a shit:

1) Multiple molds. As the electode wears during making the mold, the various moulds vary
2) As the cavity wears, the mould becomes BIGGER. Left un changed or cheaping out, the BB's get BIGGER. Keep in mind there are dozens of machines spitting out bb's
2) Media for finishing varies over time. Giving a different surface finish. Also a bb that went in starting at say 5.97" may grow to 5.96" after "x" time in the finishing machine. That will vary when the starting bb is larger or smaller. The ability for the media to "work" will diminish over time.
3)Temperature during inspection of the first article. Expansion coefficient of the steel in the mold etc etc.
4)Temp of the plant making the bb's. Is it temp controlled or 140 degrees in the dead of summer?

To me the bottom line is use what works and don't fuck around. Jam your gun on a piece of shit bb and you can turf your grearbox, WHATEVER the bb "brand" is.

I issue Elite Force at our Field. I have zero complaints. I suspect it has to do with having a 5.95" nominal tolerance. Elite force is 5.95" +/- 0.01". NOT "as close as possible to"This puts the baseline in a spot that reduces the chance of jam for tighter tolerance set ups.

Find what works, then stick with it. Spend your time, money and energy on other stuff.
