Are 6mm bbs exactly 6mm?

Crossman ~6mm bbs? I've seen yellow Crossman bbs that were close to 7mm and jammed barrels, so Dozer's guesstimation is preatty accurate.

I'm sitting here with a caliper measuring my KSC BB's, so far they are all below 6.00mm, 5.96-5.98mm, but these are from the floor so I think they may already have been fired, they aernt fresh from the bag.

Poor logic FTW, amirite?

Seriously, last I checked, boobs were not fullly spherical....but the Death Star is (until it gets 'sploded)
Never referred to them as boobs because they are fully sphirical, if you want to be picky, look at the half that has the nipple, there ya go.

Bean, if you nipples produce milk, I'm never gonna look at your name the same way again. Lol

Hmm, i got thinkin'. Golf balls have dimples in them. Aparently they produce a reduction in drag. Wondering if this would actually benefit in airsoft....

Been discussed, no. Someone on Airsoft Retreat asked once, and it's just not practical due to the light weight of BBs (compared to golf balls) and that golf balls are lobbed (as opposed to going horizontal to the ground). Drag reduction is accomplished by having air reside in the dimples therefore reducing the disruption of the laminar airflow around the surface of the ball (let's just say it acts like "airgrease", as well as reducing the "vacuum" effects behind the ball), somewhat in the way that winglets on large airliners works (reduces drag caused by a vortex created by the wing tip that fucks up the boundary layer at the wing tip). At least a backspin occurs in golf and airsoft, so the two can have something in common.

Ya, had thought of it as well at one point. Still think about how fascinating it is though (I LOVE aerodynamics and am fortuneate enough to work in a place that it's a mian point of research) and went as far as to think "Hmm, wonder if dimpling the exterior of a car would assist in fuel milage??

One fascinating thing I saw a few years ago, I think it was NASA that improved the drag co-efficient in an F-16 jet fighter by drilling thousands of tiny holes (with a laser) in the leading edge of the wings and pumping pressurized air into the leading edges (instead of air molecules rubbing on metal, the air flowed freely over air and reduced the vorticies that occur further back on the wing surface.)

Damn man, aerodynamics are amazing!!!!

The F-16XL airframe? The idea worked, too, though I don't recall them pumping pressurized air into the holes. Only problem was there was no practical way of keeping all the little holes from clogging up, IIRC.

Ok, yes, both can hurt when you get smacked by them, both can go longer distances than one might expect, both are perfectly round, etc. etc. etc.
