Various BB weights

Can someone give me some info on what weight BB's are used for what? I see BB's from .20 gram up untill .40 gram. Do these different wieghts have different effects? Are there some BB's that are better for inside and asome for outside?

heavier=more accurate,higher penetration (through leaves) but lower fps and range

most people game with either .25 or .28

also, all cronying at games is done with .20

The way I see it:

Indoors = .2 (gets to your target faster)

Outdoors up to 370 FPS = .25 (Much better range and bush penetration)

Outdoors 370 to 430ish = .28 (Even greater range and bush penetration, but has the extra FPS to keep the BB moving quickly)

outdoor 400+ = .30 (Greater range, less deviation by wind ect ect)

After .28 its really up to what the shooter prefers and what the situation calls for... .40 and such are basically dedicated sniper rounds

Had to fix it, brings up the old maximum vs. effective range thing, heavier (to a point, up to 0.30g) will have a farther effective range, where lighter will blow off course earlier and end up only Stalker knows where. Lol, there's a new twist to things, eh? If I can get 140ft kills with 0.36g BBs in my G19............. think I can do the same with 0.20g? Fuck no!
