Have you ever shot steel BBs at a hard surface? We sure hope not because it's not a very good idea. But if you have, you know they ricochet! What if you didn't have to worry so much about ricochet and could shoot at something hard like a steel target, or even compete in a Cowboy Action Shooting like competition with a BB gun? Now you can!

Until now, traditional steel BBs weren't your best option for this type of 3-Gun competition because of ricochet. With the Smart Shot BBs worry less about ricochet and cleanliness and spend more time shooting. They're a great option for indoor shooting range and gallery rifles. If you're tired of plinking with the same old tin can because you're worried about ricochet, now you can enjoy shooting at steel targets.

The Excite Smart Shot BBs go through the copper-plating process not once, but twice. They're the exact same diameter as steel BBs (4.35mm). That rigorous process means the Smart Shot BBs are hard enough to prevent lead deformation in the magazine of your gun, but still soft enough to flatten on impact, meaning less ricochet worries for you. Since these BBs keep their shape so well, they�re a great option for your spring-loaded magazines.

PLEASE NOTE: Since the Smart Shot BBs are made from lead they work best in BB guns that do not require a magnet to keep the BBs in place for shooting.

Brief history by Tom Gaylord:
The first BB used in an air rifle was BB-sized lead shot used by shotgunners. In the day when it was popular (the 1880s), shot was sold in bags in hardware stores and came in various numerical and letter sizes, including sizes B, BB and BBB. BB shot was supposed to be 0.180 inches in diameter and weigh more than nine grains.

At the turn of the 20th century, Daisy reduced the size of what they always called air rifle shot to a lead ball 0.175 inches in diameter. That saved them lead and also went faster because it was a lighter ball.

In the 1920s Daisy discovered that some boys in Minneapolis were using steel ball bearings that they were salvaging from a reject pile behind the American Ball Company. They checked the sizes of the balls they wanted to shoot by dropping them through the bores of their shot tubes. If they passed through, they were fired. If they stuck, well, a huge influx of stuck steel balls in shots tubes was what got Daisy�s attention in the first place.

Long story short, Daisy bought American Ball and started making their own steel air rifle shot. It was sized 0.171-0.173 inches, nominally. They had to change the size and design of their shot tubes to accommodate the new shot, and some time late in the 1920s BB began rebounding from hard targets with great force � something the soft lead balls had not done. This started the mothers of American warning against shooting your eye out.



Note: Although all steel BBs state .177 caliber/4.5mm, in reality they are not and never have been. That is why a regular .177 caliber lead ball will not work in BB guns. They�re simply too big in diameter.

Things I liked: These BBs are superior to anything on the market. I will never use any other kind.

Things I would have changed: Nothing at all.

What others should know: If you use BBs this is the best ones available. Yes they cost a lot more but the product is so superior that the cost is not even a consideration.

Things I liked: I bought these BBs for my Colt peacemaker CO2 pistol to enhance the accuracy and they are more accurate than steel BBs. The excite and the H&N copper coated pellets shot about a quarter sized group at 6 yards (off a rest). The H&N solid lead opened up considerably.

Things I would have changed: More BBs for the money....Why I remember when I was a kid (and still am) you could get a big tube of BBs for 25 cents. That was in the 50s.

What others should know: I would give the copper coated lead BBs a try. They are more accurate and safer than steel shot.

  • Larry from USA asked:

    Will these hold their shape in a Drozd machine pistol magazine? Pure lead .177 ball pellets do not and deform, jamming the airgun. Thanks!

    • Tyler from USA:

      They should. The coating is pretty thick so they are much harder than the pure lead BBs

  • Ernest from USA asked:

    Do the H&N Excite Smart Shot 0.177 cal, 7.4 grain, copper plated LEAD BBs work in the Daisy 880?

    • Tyler from USA:

      No

  • Ernest from USA asked:

    Do the H&N excite smart shot .177, 7.4 gr, copper coated LEAD BBs work in the Daisy 880?

    • Alex from USA:

      Not reliably, the 880 uses a magnetic piece to pick up BB's from the reservoir. Though you can kind of shake one into place and shoot it that way.
