Depends where the package is being shipped from and it's intended destination. If it's coast to coast, might take awhile. I only oder my BB's through BBBastard, which had great service, got my order within 3 days I think it was.

Black BBs are real stealthy. But if you mix them with white you can use the white as an occasional tracer round. My suggestion is to get a bag of black, try a full mag of black and see what happens. They try mixing in different ratios until you get a tracer mix you're happy with.

Just like muzzle flash in the real world, being able to locate your enemy by the projectile signature can be a tactical disadvantage. Black BBs are an OPTION that can help address that, but they are no better or worse than white for all other practical purposes.
just don't forget you loaded up with straight black or black/white mix. I did that for the first time last year at BW2 and thought I had feed issues all day long. lol

Where are you located? I am not sure if they ship everyday or how it works. They've just taken over my online retail business and I think they're still getting the kinks out as well... I did everything by hand, but that got really hard to do as the volume went up.

PM me if you really get stuck and I'll figure something out.

Yes. It has no function, other than to keep it protected/dirt out etc.

It's called a "dustcover". Makes sense right? :wink:

*Mouth drops to the floor* You are in the retail buisness right?

I recommend getting both, White makes it very easy to sight in your gun/hopup and black is hard to trace. Just remember that because it's hard for them to see your bb, it's also hard for YOU to see it. So you need to weigh out how much stealth to the ease of you tracing your shots to find what you want.

My C8 shoots 325 with .2 and is normally my CQB gun. But I fielded it outdoors today using .28 and the range and accuracy were sick. The down side were that the BBs travelled slower, but had no troubles keeping up, and in some cases, outranging longer and much more powerful AEGs.

And even though they only shoot 300-320 fps with .2, I always use .3g in my GBB pistols. The range and accuracy I get are just utterly stupid. Last game I had AEG problems twice, requiring me to use my Glock. I was getting 100-ish ft kills with it. No way I could have done that with lighter BBs outdoors.
