BB Colour

Do people use white BBs for the simple reason of being able to see it better while its traveling through the air?

Yes, and it also helps ID hits on someone that doesn't call hit, if you see your BBs bounce off them, you can contest it and call them out, reduces the chances of cheating if you know the guy that shot them can likely see them hit. Also heavier BBs make a louder sound when hitting, helps comfirm a hit or not.

I have a pack of black BBs and they almost look white while they are flying towards the target.

I find it weird that they are so visible while in flight that i recheck my mag to be sure that i am not shooting white loads

Often people mix black and white to make a sort of 'tracer' mix. You can get Bastards in .25g in black and white.

Does TTAC3 only use 0.20g BBs? I was considering getting white 0.25g or 0.28g BBs but won't if they're prohibited.

i use white simply for the reason that i am able to see them. i guess if i played a winter game, i would use black. and indoor, i would use tracer. but that aside, i use white only for visibility reasons. the only reason why i haven't bought your heavy bbs is cause they dont come in white.

so like every few shots there's a white, but when firing in full auto it looks like it's all white, that's how tracer rounds for RS are loaded usually every 6th round I think

An RS MG belt has them every 12-14 rounds, IIRC... though that may have just been in aircraft.

Also, white BB's are a bitch in winter. You can't see where nothing is going!

Does TTAC3 normally sell BBs during games, or would I be expected to supply my own?

Doesn't that mean that you'd have to load them in that specific order? I can see that being a pain in the butt...

Whenever I went there Brian had BB Bastards for sale.

And correct me if Im wrong but doesn't Brian restrict the use of anything other than .20 BBs?

Not really, get an empty bag, pour in half a bag of whites and half a bag of blacks then mix em up. It's what I did for my MG36 and it works great.
