  • Aaron from USA asked:

    Can these be used for small game, if so are they better than steel because they break apart?

    • Tyler from USA:

      I would not recommend them for small game.

  • Seth from USA asked:

    Are these smaller in diameter? And do they leave fragments in the barrel?

    • Tyler from USA:

      They measure about the same diameter around the band (the widest part) as your standard steel BBs. And no, they do not break apart in the barrel.

  • gary from USA asked:

    What other Umarex Legends guns will these work in other than not in the MP40?

    • Tyler from USA:

      They work in the M712, UZI, P08, Makarov....I think that's everything else?

  • steve'sdental lab from USA asked:

    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 ?

    • Tyler from USA:

      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.

  • Martin from USA asked:

    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

    • Tyler from USA:

      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?

  • Andy from USA asked:

    What will happen if you shoot a brick or concrete wall ??

    • Tyler from USA:

      Have shot them against concrete walls and they break apart without issue

  • Brian from USA asked:

    Will they work in a Baikal drozd bumblebee "clip" not the hopper?

    • Jimbo from USA:

      Should be no problem since the Drozd magazine is fed by spring pressure

  • Mark from USA asked:

    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

    • Tyler from USA:

      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

  • Leon from USA asked:

    What kind of bb guns don't they work in?

    • Tyler from USA:

      At this point, only seen 3 they don't work in. The ISSC M22, Umarex MP40 and the ASG Ingram M11

  • Christopher from USA asked:

    I think the "ammo-shape" in specifications is incorrect.

    • Tyler from USA:

      Good catch

  • Andy from USA asked:

    Will they work in a Umarex Steel Storm CO2 Gun

    • Tyler from USA:


  • Halfred D. from USA asked:

    So these BB's do not penetrate is that correct? They would not serve for eliminating rodents etc. correct?

    • Tyler from USA:

      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.

  • Ken from USA asked:

    Are they magnetic?

    • Tyler from USA:


  • Tim from Canada asked:

    how will these work in a rifled barrel?

    • Tyler from USA:

      They shoot pretty well out of most rifled barrels tested. Guns like the Crosman 760 and Daisy 880 tested very well with them

  • joverton from USA asked:

    Will these work in a Umarex MP 40?

    • Tyler from USA:

      No, it's one of the few guns they do not feed correctly in

  • Joe from USA asked:

    Will they break glass bottles or a window?

    • Steve from USA asked:

      That narrow, raised belt that encircles the BB worries me that it will make the flight erratic?

      • Tyler from USA:

        Not in my testing, these are just as accurate in most of my BB guns as any other brand of BBs out there

    • John from USA asked:

      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?

      • Tyler from USA:

        Yes they are magnetic and no, they will not damage any barrels
