Best Types of Airsoft Ammo
Airsoft is a very popular game played where "enemies" shoot at each other with pellets. The game is not a dangerous one.
If you are wearing the correct gear and equipment then you will be just fine. However, if you do not dress properly and you are not wearing a helmet or goggles, you should not be allowed onto the playing field.
There are many different airsoft guns available as well as ammo. You have many options when considering equipment, but you have to be careful about what you choose. You shouldn't change the ammo you use all the time, as it can damage your gun after some time.
You have many options to choose from when it comes to ammo for your airsoft gun. They typically range from quality, weight, and size, to style and performance.
If you have a budget that you have to stick to with your ammo, the .12 gram pellets are normally the cheapest. They are not the best quality and are quite light, but they will still do the job. They might crack, split and break more easily than the others, but if you don't have more money then this is your only option.
These are better to use for practicing shots in your back yard, but if you have to you can use them in a game too.
With the .12 gram bullets, they might fire at a velocity that is much higher, but your shot is likely to not be as accurate. These are perfect to use for starter kits or for electric guns, or just for people that are on a tight budget and can't afford anything more.
It is not advised that these bullets be used with high quality airsoft guns; you are sure to find that it will damage your gun in some way. Not only will the gun be damaged, but by using cheap bullets that you aren't supposed to use you will probably void the gun's warranty.
The standard BB's that are used for airsoft guns are the .20 gram. Many of the guns are benchmarked together with these bullets to check if they work with FPS. The weight of these bullets makes them perform the way they do. They offer you the perfect ratio for accuracy as well as speed, and they even work nicely with some of the higher end AEG's and also some other airsoft guns.
Not all guns and bullets are able to perform the way a good quality gun will with .20gram bullets. They might be a little more expensive, but it is worth it. Rather spend a little bit of extra cash and get something decent.
There are different types of bullets for different guns and players. The veteran players will prefer something more along the lines of the .25gram bullet. With this one the range and speed might be reduced, but it offers more accuracy so you gain in that department.
These are the heavier bullets so they work well with the guns that have the power to accommodate them. Some of these guns include the Echo 1 Vector Arms AK47, Aftermath Orphus, Echo 1 USA M14 RIS, UTG Model 4 Tactical and the UTG Shadow Ops. These are powerful enough to use these heavy bullets.
Even heavier than the .25gram bullet is the .028 gram one. These are known to be one of the heaviest there is out on the market. They are also one of the most accurate shots you will get, but with all that accuracy your speed and range is likely to suffer.
If you have an upgraded sniper rifle or an upgraded AEG, these are the bullets you will want to use with your gun. They are great to use for people that are serious about the game, because these bullets might be the best. But, they are not the cheapest.
They are also not recommended to be used in any other guns, and definitely not in a starter gun. Those guns are not designed to handle such a lot of weight and they might damage the gun, or even worse someone might get injured.
Then, if you have a gun that can handle something even heavier than the 0.28 gram, there is the .30. These are obviously heavier and are also perfect for upgraded guns. They should be used especially if you are planning on perfecting your long range shots.
They are heavy, so with enough force from the gun they can go a far way. As you can imagine these heavier bullets have a harder shot, which means if they come into contact with your opponent's bare skin there is going to be some painful experiences and unhappy players.
Make sure everyone is properly equipped and dressed before the game starts. Also make sure that no one else can just walk onto the field in the middle of the game.
If that isn't enough for you, you might want to try the .43 gram bullets. You can imagine the effect that these will have on its target, and it's not a pretty one!
You will have to look at your gun in order to determine what BB's you think you should be using, but also try out a few and see which ones give you the best shot. If you find that a heavier bullet gives you more accuracy and you are comfortable with it then by all means use it. Just make sure you will not be damaging your gun in the process.
Make sure you take care of your gun the way you are supposed to. There's no point in getting the right BB's and going through all that trouble if you aren't going to look after your gun.
Your bullets are just as important as your gun. Without the BB's you wouldn't be able to play. Your game depends on how you perform, and if you have the right equipment and you are confident in what you are doing you are sure to have a great game!
