Nah man, a guy was dming me on Instagram about parts needed to build an 8j airsoft gun lol
Quite literally this:I put an airsoft barrel on an airbow I made and got 39J.
That's above the speed of sound with a .48g BB.
Funnily enough, the BB reached a building 110m away barely faster than a 3J gun with the same ammo.
To be honest I would use the joules as a reference since you will presumably be shooting .38s anyway.As for the airsoft, 550 is the limit for the local fields.This was with .38g bbs, now I grabbed some .20, I will see what that is.
That will do the trick... LOLIt is a 33 grain projectile with 230 grains of powder. It travels at 5883 fps i.e. Mach 5.
In order to make the projectile not disintegrate special barrels have to be used: 3-groove, polygonal-rifling 1:20″-twist. The bullets are not jacketed but turned on a lathe.
I will be shooting .40s and up. I have about 10K of .40.To be honest I would use the joules as a reference since you will presumably be shooting .38s anyway.
So your field has the limit of 550fps with 0.38 or 0.2? Tell them that measuring only with fps is misleading and that they need to starts measuring and limit with J output too. I suppose you're familiar with Joulecreep. If not, it's basically in most cases using heavier bb would results in higher joule output.As for the airsoft, 550 is the limit for the local fields.This was with .38g bbs, now I grabbed some .20, I will see what that is.
In this build setting, try to use 0.38. You'll notice the increase in J.
