By Andy from Canada on 2016-01-05 11:26:48

Things I liked:

These are some of the most accurate bb's I've found, I'm not that much of a "BB" gun person, but with the bb guns I do have(Baby Desert Eagle, Umarex Morph, Steel Force,), that Accuracy has improved a great deal, as an example, My Baby Desert Eagle, which was already an incredibly accurate shooter to begin with is almost like firing a dedicated "Pellet" firing shooter with these rounds, even more so than what I was using beforehand(Avanti bb's), Now this little shooter gives me "One Ragged Hole" groupings at 10 meters, whereas all others would give good groupings but not as "Tight" as these little Black beauties. I can't wait to see how they do in the Beretta 92A1 CO2 BB Pistol, I just pre-ordered. as well as my "Steel Force", as soon as its empty w/ the Avanti bb's it's filled with now.

Things I would have changed:

Offer them in larger container sizes like Daisy.

What others should know:

You will see a noticeable difference w/ these loaded in your shooter.

    Things I liked:

    Very round and a bit lighter. Work well in the Daisy model 99 Target Special and Springfield Armory M1 Carbine to help prevent feed jams. Very accurate too!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing!

    What others should know:

    As stated, they help prevent feed jams in some rifles as compared to Daisy or Crosman BB's.

    Things I liked:

    Seem to be rounder and smoother going through action. Fewer feed jams. More accurate as well in my vintage Daisy model 99 Target Special. And my new Springfield Armory M1 Carbine Co2 semi-auto BB repeater. Worth the price!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    If your BB gun is experiencing feed jams, try these! They work great for me.

    Things I liked:

    High quality bbs , sized appropriately and coating is good

    Things I would have changed:

    Coating should prevent rust but doesnt. Left open overnight and moisture got into container and formed rust on bbs.

    What others should know:

    I only shoot these or Crossman bbs

    Things I liked:

    These BB's seem to be more uniform than the BB's I normally purchase. They also seem to be a little more accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    fNothing

    What others should know:

    Because these BB's are a dull black color they are much more difficult to see than the copper or steel colored BB's when in flight. For that reason it is harder to know when you are shooting at a hard target at some distance if you actually hit the target and how to adjust your aim.

    Things I liked:

    Overall size seems to be more consistent. They fit my Umarex Brodax and Colt Python magazines better than the regular Daisy and Umarex bbs where about one out of every 10 is too small and falls out. And in my full-auto Beretta 92A1, these run perfect without any jams.

    Things I would have changed:

    Higher capacity containers.

    What others should know:

    Not really. Best bbs as far as I can tell.

    Things I liked:

    If you are looking for a BB that works flawlessly in the speed loader that comes with the Crosman DPMS SBR then look no further this BB never jams in the speed loader. I have tried other name brand BBs including Crosman BBs and they all seem to jam in the speed loader.

    Things I would have changed:

    should offer a larger size container

    I made the switch to Hornady bbs and my groups tightened up nicely. they function well in all my air guns including full auto. the price is low, and the quality is tops.

    Things I would have changed:

    please don't change a thing

    What others should know:

    I read all the reviews before I switched and was happy to see they were all true. some reviews noted they were hard to see in a mag well just put a bright color on the mag follower. [fingernail polish] I am distracted by being able to see a silver bb in flight so these solved that problem easily.

    What others should know:

    I've ran these in a Umarex Steel Force, Beretta APX and a Daisy Red Ryder. Had them all sighted with Crosman Copperheads. I get nice tight groups. (Shooting from a rest) Loaded the Black Diamonds and had to zero my scopes and red dot again. The groups I was getting, again from a rest, were not even close to the Copperheads. Hornady is in my EDC. Really wanted to like these babies.
