I'm sure this has been explained already but I'm a noob so forgive me. Everyone says BBs are bad for a rifled barrel. I get these aren't BBs by definition, but I'm confused why using a .177 BB is bad but a .177 lead ball is ok? Can someone please explain it so my thick skull can understand? I'd hate to accidentally ruin my guns by using these when I shouldn't. Thank you so much in advance.
These are pure lead not jacketed or made out of steel. Being pure lead they will not "wear" the rifling so out like a harder metal like steel will. You can shoot these ou of a rifled barrel and they will not danamge the riflings like the steel or jacketed BB's will. Hope it helps!
Will these .177cal lead round ball work well with a Crosman 1377 ?
If by "well" you mean accurate, then no they are not as accurate as a good pellet. They hit hard. They are great fun in Daisy Powerline Rifles.
Crosman 1377 is a 177cal isn't it? That should answer ur question
If these can't or shouldn't be used in BB guns, then what earthly good are they? For what are they intended to be used?
Airguns that shoot pellets in .177 caliber.
What's that difference between steel bbs not these? If I can't use it in my winchester model 11k, is there something I can do to make it better of more powerful??
The diameters of each are different. These are a larger diameter than standard steel BB's so you would have trouble using these in your 11k.
Can I use these in my bb guns
If you are talking about Daisy 880, 35, or 901, Absolutely! They work in tbe magazine. Not in a pure BB gun like the Red Ryder.
It's not suggested
I shoot at paper targets clipped to a steel pellet trap. Will these deform on impact since they are lead or will they ricochet like a steel bb?
They are great in pellet traps, but can bounce out at close range. But not dangerous ricochet like steel BBs.
They will deform however that does not mean they will not ricochet, Use safety glasses whenever shooting
