  • H&N Smart Shot Copper Plated Lead BBs by Air Venturi
  • Caliber: .177 caliber, 4.5 mm
  • Weight: 7.4 grains
  • Double copper-plated round balls
  • Count: 750 per tin, packaged in a blister pack
  • Excite Smart Shot copper plated lead BBs might just be the safest BBs available. Ricochet from hard surfaces is virtually gone because the customary, lightweight steel has been replaced with much heavier lead. And because these lead BBs undergo a double copper-plating process, they have less friction, offer increased velocity and even more distance than plain lead balls. The copper plating also helps to prevent deformation of the BB and keeps them shiny and clean from oxidation during handling and storage. Even though the Smart Shot BBs travel a little slower than steel, because they’re heavier than steel, they hit with added power.

    Excite Smart Shot Lead BBs are double-copper-coated BBs with the exact same diameter as steel BBs (4.35mm). What does that mean for you? You get a better ammunition choice for your spring-loaded BB gun magazines.

    Clean. The double coating of copper plating provides just enough hardness to prevent the lead from deforming in the barrel of your airgun. So unlike traditional lead balls, you won't experience lead fouling in the barrel.

    Versatile. Now you can shoot at steel targets, shoot competitively, and even shoot indoors with the Smart Shot BBs in your BB handgun or rifle. Copper coating makes their surface much harder than traditional lead balls, yet they still flatten on impact. Smart Shot BBs offer whole new world of target choices for you to shoot at.

    Choose the heavyweight Smart Shot BBs and you’ll be surprised by their performance, penetration and low ricochet.

    PLEASE NOTE: Smart Shot BBs are made from lead, so they work best in airguns that do not require a magnet to keep the BBs in place for shooting.



    Brief history by Tom Gaylord The first BB used in an air rifle was BB-sized lead shot used by shotgunners. In the day when it was popular (the 1880s), shot was sold in bags in hardware stores and came in various numerical and letter sizes, including sizes B, BB and BBB. BB shot was supposed to be 0.180 inches in diameter and weigh more than nine grains.

    At the turn of the 20th century, Daisy reduced the size of what they always called air rifle shot to a lead ball 0.175 inches in diameter. That saved them lead and also went faster because it was a lighter ball.

    In the 1920s Daisy discovered that some boys in Minneapolis were using steel ball bearings that they were salvaging from a reject pile behind the American Ball Company. They checked the sizes of the balls they wanted to shoot by dropping them through the bores of their shot tubes. If they passed through, they were fired. If they stuck, well, a huge influx of stuck steel balls in shots tubes was what got Daisy’s attention in the first place.

    Long story short, Daisy bought American Ball and started making their own steel air rifle shot. It was sized 0.171-0.173 inches, nominally. They had to change the size and design of their shot tubes to accommodate the new shot, and some time late in the 1920s BB began rebounding from hard targets with great force — something the soft lead balls had not done. This started the mothers of American warning against shooting your eye out.



    Note: Although all steel BBs state .177 caliber/4.5mm, in reality they are not and never have been. That is why a regular .177 caliber lead ball will not work in BB guns. They're simply too big in diameter.

Things I liked: Low ricochet and heavy BB which make them accurate.

Things I would have changed: These BBs are pricey and difficult choice to make considering the price of regular BBs

What others should know: I think they're worth having around for the occasion that you would like to shoot something that you fear will Ricochet

Things I liked: Not only do these not bounce, they are heavier than steel BBs! They are soft enough to use with a rifled barrel.

Things I would have changed: Too expensive! Offer a bulk size at a serious discount.

What others should know: If you have one of the rare Marocchi SM45 HP air rifles, these are the perfect round to replace the Marocchi brand copper clad lead BBs. The Gamo plain lead BBs also work in the Marocchi, and are much less expensive. Remember, never shoot steel BBs in an SM45 HP, it will destroy the rifling in the barrel.

  • William from USA asked:

    It would be smart if Pyramid would format these products in a similar manner. If you look for Excite then this one does not show up in your search: http://www.pyramydair.com/s/p/H_N_Smart_Shot_177_Cal_7_4_Grains_Copper_Plated_Lead_BBs_150ct/1327 If you search for Air Venturi, then only this one shows up in the search: http://www.pyramydair.com/s/p/Air_Venturi_H_N_Smart_Shot_177_Cal_7_4_Grains_Copper_Plated_Lead_BBs_750ct/1274 It is inconsistant and makes it harder to find what I am looking for. Thanks for a great website in all other regards.

    • Alan from USA asked:

      will these work in the ebos or will they jam.

      • Val from USA:

        They will work

    • nicholas from USA asked:

      My experience as well as many of you will know with copper coated bb's you get a cooper dust over time and as a result your mag actions and barrels can get pretty dirty from this and is why i only use zinc plated bb's. Do you know if this will occur with these excites? And if so why not produce a lead bb in a zinc plate?

      • Val from USA:

        These have been on the market for 1.5 years now. So far no reports of copper coating flaking off.
