Things I liked: Great BB, Great dispenser. Steel just penetrate better
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: Get plenty of ammo
Things I liked: Nice bbs , price is very fair, seem to be very clean , but not the most accurate in my co2 blowback bb pistols shot at 15yards off a beach , will need more testing.
Things I would have changed: Not a thing , really cannot find any flaws
Things I liked: Haven't shot well enough to know how these BBs compare in accuracy to Avanti or H&N lead. Seem to work fine in my 75th Anniversary Red Ryder and old POWER LINE 1200 CO2 pistol.
Things I would have changed: Catalog weights shown. Pyramid lists all their BB's as weighing 5.1 grain, except the ASG Blaster as 5.4 grain. I wanted a slightly larger BB for the shot tube in my late 1920's Model 25 so I tried the Blasters. Whoops,they measure slightly smaller in diameter and lighter in weight than the Avanti My measurements show ASG Blaster actual weight 5.3 grains, diameter 0.175 - 0.1720". Daisy Avanti weighed 5.4 grains, and mike'd 0.173" dia. H&N just for fun were 7.6 grains, 0.1710 - 0.1715" diameter. Weighed ten BB's at a time & divided the result by 10 to get one BB weight. Used an RCBS Model 5-0-2 reloading scale, mfg by Ohaus in USA. Micrometer old one from Dixie Gun Works. All this because I am a picky engineer. In reality, one needs try various BB's in one's own gun. Results may not be all that predictable, based on others' reviews.
What others should know: All steel BBs are cheap. Shoot more!

Woupld someone with an accurate micrometer measure the diameter of a sampling of these BBs? If they are in fact heavier, a larger diameter could be the reason...
The weight has more to do with the steel alloy than size. All BB's are nominally .177 cal.
If it's "Accuracy" you're After, and you don't mind spending an extra few bucks,,,,,,,,The Absolute Best BB/Lead Rounds you can use are H&N Rundkugelns(Roundball) are the 4.45mm offerings, They are a touch larger than Regular BB's, but not as large as the regular .177 4.5mm Lead "Rounds", You'll see your Accuracy increase 10 fold, and think you're actually firing a Pellet dedicated pistol. Cheer's Andy.
what is it that makes these heavier? are they lead?
They may use a different mix of materials than others. You'd have to ask ASG about the composition.
