I use .28 for my AEG and .25 for my pistol. If the .28 went down in price sure would be nice.

.28s for everyday play .30's for heavy wind days in my ptw
currently building a BA and plan to use .36 or .4

there are a couple "contests" a group and i may goto which may be indoors so i MIGHT bring out .25s which i usually reserve for the pistol

my PTW can't use anything lighter than a .28 or shoot any lower than 400fps LOL

.28 cost effective. I shoot 100-300 rounds a day, target practice.

Edit * No BA rifle or AEG, I use gbb & gbbr only.

if I can get .28s and up for close to 20$ for 3500-4000 rounds, I will use heavier rounds... I really like 28s, but I'm starting into .3s and .32s now to see if there's any benefits with r-hop.

I'll use these mid weights in all my AEGs... though now with a lower power bolt option, I may stick to .23s or .25s in my gas pistols and smg.

for my RS Type 97 I use .28 usually they work great.
for the upgraded KC02 I currently use .36 and getting over 200 feet with accuracy. Plan to try .4 or heavier just to see what happens. plus a move from the 350mm to the 510mm inner should gain a bit more range with accuracy. we will see

.30 for my TM M14 (bought it used and the hop was preset for .30's and I don't wanna screw around with the R-Hop either), .25 for my KWA MP7 & KJW P226 (find that these work best for both indoor and out); and when I had my ICS M4, I was running .28 (which I liked because it had good range). So far my favourites have been the .28's but the range with the .30's is great too

.25 , worked very well for me last Saturday with my madbull ulitmate hopup in my m15cqb, the wind barely affected the flight of the bb. I would have used .28 but there's a big difference in velocity loss I noticed at least with my setup anyway.

My PTW really likes 0.28's...much more so than 0.30's for whatever reason. Range and accuracy difference is noticeable. But I'm sure that's just a peculiarity of my hopup setup.

My gas guns really prefer 0.30's

In most of my AEG's in the past 0.28's/0.30's were just about the same...slight edge to 0.30's

In SAW/LMG's I prefer 0.25's so there's a bit more of a spread in the pattern...sometimes I'll throw in random leftovers of whatever I have of any weight. The random fliers and pattern is really neat for area suppression.

.28 on a 300-350fps, something 450 bolt action, I would look at .32

For all my guns; GBB pistols to PTW: .28s are my preferred weight, perfect balance of range and accuracy.
