My sniper rifle is hitting 550 fps and I wanna know what weight bbs I should use.
I know that the heavier the better, however, I heard the clear biovals .27 are exceptionally good.

So should I use biovals .27s or another high quality .36?

Also, can I wash biodegradable bbs or is that a no-no

You have several questions and a demand to begin with.

Also, heavier bbs are not always better seeing as this is a relative situation.

Bioval bbs are of higher quality than most, however that is such a light weight for that amount of power.

As far as biodegradables, many advise against washing them or using them in a sniper rifle at all, especially of that magnitude. (why is that high of fps necessary?)

That wasn't my question
Seemed like an appropriate answer to your question to me. I agree with him; run either 0.40g or 0.43g. I'd go the 0.40g route though because they aren't black and you can actually see them.

As for your other question, I personally wouldn't wash BIO bbs. The Bioval's don't need it anyways, but if you get MadBull 0.40g's then I would wash them; that's what I always did.

My rifle came stock at 550 fps

I heard that madbull rebranded guarder tan .40 or .43 bbs.
I have about 3k of those bbs and found that almost all of the bbs were no completely spherical :/

I've had decent success with them. And no, everybody else pretty much re-brands MadBull heavies. That's the best you'll get until Bioval comes out with their heavy ammo.

Since you don't want MadBull's, you're either going to have to go with Golden Ball 0.40g or a light weight such as Bioval or Bioshot 0.30g. The Golden Ball's are black though, so I wouldn't recommend them.

What rifle is it that comes stock at 550 FPS?

My Tanaka is basically stock and shoots that hard. I'm using Madbull .43s right meow and they seem to work fine for me.
