BB Bastard "Sniper Grade" 0.36g and 0.40g review

New BBs, new thread start. Link to my previous review of products is here for reference:

http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthr...hlight=bastard

This time, will still use my TM Mk23 springer and CA M24 sniper rifle for the testing (Both for chrony, M24 for group consistancy and field use).

Ok, so I got one bag of each and started phase one earlier tonight. Am impressed so far. First one I had Bastard 0.30g BBs still in my mag, cleaned the barrel with a dry patch, came out clean. Each string of 25 shots, five per target, barrel was cleaned before and each time the patch came out clean. First run was a set in test sample of, left right, down, left right, 30ft in basement, 0.30g, 0.36g, 0.40g 0.30g, 0.30g rounds:



Next was 25 shots of 0.36g Bastards:



And 25 shots of 0.40g:



Now if anyone who has shot an airsoft gun for groupings knows, 2" at 30ft using the best and most consistant gun/ammo is fucking good. What I grabbed here at best was 1", a couple groupings were just a single jagged hole. Did get a couple flyers, but if the single one was ignored, then I'd have smaller than an inch grouping which is fucking amazing for an airsoft gun.

More will come, chrony testing the next couple nights, stay tuned.

The colouring isn't that bad at all, my using them in the field (Phase Three) over a few months will determine if they are usable as is for tracking, or can't see at all. This review is gonna be a work in progress over the next half dozen months, so will post opinions as things go.

Had a conversation with Scarecrow on the field Saturday about this, their are no airbubbles in the heavier weights, u need alot of force to break one open, and altho bb's essentinally need the airbubble for a smooth break upon impact, these bb's dont powerderize or go into 10 peices, they stay in pretty large chunks.

Mike to add a bit to the review, Jay gave me some .40 to try out in my 600mm tightbore equiped SPR, and I must say impressive, adds a bit of range on full hop, and much better constant accuracy.. Now this isnt done with targets, just outdoors full range shooting, but I can tell the improvment just from watching. So these arent just for sniping, if u have a precision AR, they will work great for you as well.

This is good to know. I'm already picking up a few bags when my cash flow starts up again but might have to grab a few more seeing I wanna turn the EBR into a real nail driver for the summer.

I'll have some tonight to test.
I won't be able to do a controled test. But it will be a comparaison of feel between strait 0.36g and BB bastart 0.30g.

I will be shooting in an indoor field, so I'll have both long range and no wind.

Thanks for your effort. I know a bunch of people appreciate the data.

I love the .30 BB bastard bb's for my VSR and will be ordering some heavier ones today to test with.

regarding the COLOUR of the Heavy Bastards

This weekend of the FR game hosted by Zeon, I spent the lunch time lull tuning down my APS2EX so that it cronied at 413 fps with 0.25 weight BBS....then scrimmed the rest of the day with it.
I was not impressed with the high cross winds (throwing the 0.25 weight BBs over 6 feet off centre at 100 feet). But needless to say, at the end of the day I took the opertunity to run some of the 0.36 weigh BB Bastards, and check out the "stealth" aspect of the non white BBs.

I found that the colour of the 0.36s are (in my opnion) excellent for tracking the BBs from the shooters prespective, but do give other observers a problem tracking the BBs (unless there is some type of drastic visual difference between the BB and the back drop). The subtle colours are easily distinguishable from the the natural surroundings, but not nearly a visible as the blazing white BBs.

Now I am use to using the graphite coated 0.36s which a lot of shooters have tracking issues with, but the BB Bastard pastel mint green 0.36s provided no problems with tracking every one of the 25 shots I plinked around with into different back drops. A couple were fired toward the tree line, a couple into the sand berms, and a couple into the areas with structures. Each shot was easily tracked from when it entered my field of vision, right through to the target.

And of course the heavier weight BBs made a huge difference in the effect that the cross wind had on my shots. The varience at 100 feet compaired to when I was running the 0.25s earlier in the day went from ther 6 feet off centre, to about 2 feet of center (an easily "guestimated" adjustment reguardless of what ever type of optics you are using).

I did not have a chance to recrony using the 0.36s for an fps comparison, but the over all effective range was greater with the 0.36s compaired to the 0.25s (because the shots were more consistant). Yes, the 0.25s went a further distance, but as I said, the 0.36s had a greater effective range, where you'd get more hits with fewer shots compaired to when using the 0.25s (basic airsoft ballistics).

Anyways, the colours of the 0.36s and 0.40s that the BB Bastard is offering us will continue to make it easy to tell when you've got what in your mags, and offer a great "stealth" colour that is not so dark that even the shooter cannot track it at long range.

Another great product from the Bastard.
