Things I liked: Very uniform.
Things I would have changed: Spout needs bigger hole; bbs get stuck when pouring.
Things I liked: They work when used for the 'correct' purpose, which I describe below. I give FIVE STARS for value because they were FREE with the order_ WHAT A DEAL!
Things I would have changed: Get rid of the flat spot/dimple. Ever look CLOSE at a BB? I mean REALLY close, like with a 10+ loop or such. You would THINK that the copper coated BB is about as SMOOTH as you can get... WRONG! These 'Venturi' steel BBs are basically the SAME as another popular companies, which are called 'Copperhead'. I personally believe (no proof here_ just my opinion) that BOTH are made by the same factory. I have discovered that, to use these 'correctly', I do NOT use them in ANY of my magazines which use spring pressure to feed the BB into the breech. When used, SOMETHING causes them to JAM towards the top of the magazine, usually the top five or six. As you might know, the BBs do NOT stay in a straight line in the magazine, but rather sort of a ZIG-ZAG, and I believe the dimple AND THE ROUGHNESS seen with a good loop magnifier is why they OFTEN jam. They work GREAT in any rifle that you POUR them into, and also for the cartridges that you place a single BB in the front or rear of it.
What others should know: I KNOW this is not a review for OTHER BBs, but you need to KNOW that I have NO issues with the SILVER looking BBs used in my spring-loaded magazines, like my 'Makarov Ultra' and 'Colt Defender'. I will say that the 'Copper' ones tend to do okay with one of my other pistols which uses a spring-loaded magazine, my 'T.D.P. 45'. But, again, they do NOT for the other two pistols. I can get three or more shots off, then JAM TIME! Soon as I switch over to the OTHER non-copper BBs, no problemo. So, to sum up, I use the 'Coppers' for the 'Daisy Red Rider' type rifles AND for the loading of the single BB cartridges, like for my 'Dan Wesson' and my BEAUTIFUL 'Colt S.A.A.' from "Umarex". For the spring-loaded magazines, I will ONLY use the other, non-copper coated. Hmm, I just ordered the "Daisy CO2 Semi-auto, 200rd Reservoir, 15rd Magazine", and the 15rd magazine uses a spring. I will be looking forward to finding out if I will be able to use the 'Coppers' in it... cross fingers ;-).
Things I liked: Very accurate with my action pistols.
Things I would have changed: None
What others should know: None
