How many fpe is needed to break the bb ? Can the bb be used in a rifle barrel without doing damage to the rifling ? Is the material used made out of the alloy that are used for the alloy pellets that are made for rifled air guns ?
They have been tested with as little as 140 fps and broke against a metal target. Yes, they can be used in rifled barrels without issue.
I recently purchased this product but find that the bbs do not shatter as advertised. Have shot at brick, cast iron frying pan and close range at 2X4 and bbs just bounce off..wondering if I may somehow received bad batch. Using Umarex Colt Commander 1911 air gun for all tests. I am really interested in product and interested in any ideas anyone can offer. Marty
2x4, they definitely will not break. You have to shoot at something harder than the BB. So the frying pan should definitely make them shatter. Are you sure you are not feeling/seeing fragments come back as opposed to entire BBs?
What will happen if you shoot a brick or concrete wall ??
Have shot them against concrete walls and they break apart without issue
Will they work in a Baikal drozd bumblebee "clip" not the hopper?
Should be no problem since the Drozd magazine is fed by spring pressure
will it work in revolvers and semiautos? i dont think it will work in semiauto as it has some groove on the ball. my semiauto is SIG p226 x five from cybergun
Well considering most CO2 pistols are semi-automatic, yes it will work in most semiauto BB pistols and rifles. And it also works in all of the revolvers we have tested including the Dan Wessons and Colt SAA
What kind of bb guns don't they work in?
At this point, only seen 3 they don't work in. The ISSC M22, Umarex MP40 and the ASG Ingram M11
I think the "ammo-shape" in specifications is incorrect.
Will they work in a Umarex Steel Storm CO2 Gun
So these BB's do not penetrate is that correct? They would not serve for eliminating rodents etc. correct?
Frangible means that they will break apart on a surface that is harder than the BB (so metal targets). They will still penetrate soft materials or put holes in paper. I don't recommend BB guns for pest elimination, so I wouldn't recommend these for that purpose.
Are they magnetic?
how will these work in a rifled barrel?
They shoot pretty well out of most rifled barrels tested. Guns like the Crosman 760 and Daisy 880 tested very well with them
Will these work in a Umarex MP 40?
No, it's one of the few guns they do not feed correctly in
Will they break glass bottles or a window?
That narrow, raised belt that encircles the BB worries me that it will make the flight erratic?
Not in my testing, these are just as accurate in most of my BB guns as any other brand of BBs out there
Two questions: (1) Are these magnetic so they will work with a Red Ryder feed system? (2) Does the edge from the band around them scratch barrels?
Yes they are magnetic and no, they will not damage any barrels
