What the hell happened to Bioval???

Seriously, the best bio BB's I've ever used and they were still widely available up to a year or two ago. I know they primarily distributed to law enforcement and training, but all the local shops used to carry them as well as many online retailers.

Nowadays, I can't seem to source them ANYWHERE. I've talked with a buddy of mine who owns a local shop and he told me none of his suppliers carry them anymore.

What gives? Where can I get my hands on those pearly beads from heaven?

There were rendered irrelevant by the new school heavy BB style.

Can you elaborate? They produced .30's and upward, if I'm not mistaken.

It might also be their less than stellar behavior that is hitting back.

But yeah, mostly irrelevant. They weren't very good anyway. A far cry from BBBastards Bio and Madbull PLA bio.

They max at .3 and that's just where gas guns start.

If you really want some just buy them online.

They sure talked a good game though. I don't think they ever lived up to the Berget hype.

Again, can you elaborate at all? I'm pretty out of the loop on the situation. What exactly did they do to piss off the community? I know there was some slight controversy over their .27's cracking glass due to the hardness of the BB, but it doesn't affect eyepro the same way or compromise it so I never understood the pitchforks.


I always found Bioval's to be great, but that's just like, my opinion man. Would still like to pick up a couple bags for old time's sake. I'm pretty happy with the Madbulls too, though.

I used bioval once because I ran out of bastards and another player game them to me. It was a super rainy day, actually it's been raining for a few days, it was so humid it eventually became foggy. The Biovals stopped feeding in almost all my mags, they just gobbled the humidity and increased in size.

I've been playing for years with Bastards bio and Madbull PLA bio now and that never ever happened. They always fed perfectly in all my mags, no matter what the weather threw at them. Hell, I even had bastards bio half submerged in water for a week when they were new and wanted to test them and they fed perfectly, although accuracy was of course reduced.
