Thats been in the works since the .30 product. I am seeing if it can be done for this next spring order. If so, it probably will be .33 or .34. I am looking into heavier ones as well.

Depending on the interest I may just do a special order on the heavy stuff - have anyone interested in say .34 buy 10 bags upfront or something in order to make sure the order is workable. I don't want to get stuck with 1000 round bags of .34s that take people 2 years to go through...

If I had the money at the time, I'd willing to buy a large amount of .34 BB's to give them a shot.

(I do enough target/practice shooting indoors anyways, and always seems to be limited not by how much time I have, but how much ammo I have sitting around)

It gets so windy at some our fields SGM's veer off course as much .12's do on a breezy day, and after that it's all luck.

Easy plan, take 3/4 of that total and sell them in the US, there are a LOT of interested players in the Sniper's Perch that are interested in a new type/weight of heavy precision sniping round. And a few wanting 0.43g also, but they are largely those that run 600fps+ rifles (much smaller market).

Oh ya, guaranteed I'd be buying a few bags of 0.34g if you get them out. Be cooler if they could be made a light grey colour (still easy to track from the shooter, yet harder to see when on the receiving end of them).

DUDE, I've been bugging SCARECROW since his induction as "the BB Bastard" to start carrying .36's....and I mean for years, with nada, zilch, 0.0 on the .36's...ggrrrrrr.
But, if he can come up with a mid-heavy weight BB (such as the suggested .34's) I might forgive him for all the years I've had to pay more than $30 a bag for my graphite coated .36's......and BTW; am I the only one running graphite coated .36's anyways???

Well, I carry a small stock of dedicated 0.36g BBs for high wind conditions with my M24 (although I still have to re-adjust my hop up which sucks), but mostly my 0.36g have been getting me kills out of my KSC G19 out to (sometimes past) 100ft. Heavy BBs rock through brush and for distance.

I aim to please guys, and I'm probably one of the very few that has the time, means and ability to shoot anytime I want at home (30ft basement, but also have access to a 90ft indoor "range" that I use a few times per year to zero at longer distances and adjust hop up).

Looks like I've become a pretty staunch advertiser of BB Bastards on Airsoft Retreat, seems one or more think that if they want Bastard 0.33g or 0.34g BBs they have to buy 10 bags as a preorder. Of course I'm telling them they need to show interest to Scarecrow, which will settle his mind and allow individual sales as always. Maybe it's the way I typed the info, maybe it's the way some of them understood it. Anyways, keep tabs on that thread down there, that will largely be 2/3 of the Bastard market if things work out well.

I'm in the process of setting up Warchild (hopefully) to carry the product in NY State, so those in NY can get the product locally the same way local suppliers here supply the product. I wince everytime I fill a one $10 bag order and then have to charge $6 to $12 for shipping. I prefer that people be able to buy at the field or at a local favorite retailer - BBs are important but really are a small part of the game when it comes down to it - it shouldn't be an onerous job getting a decent supplier for them.
