So after searching for a new BB..i've pretty much come full circle and hit a dilemma. Quality light bb or average heavy weight?

I've been trying to use the search function to gather an opinion on whether madbulls are acceptable, search doesn't work. But I did find a couple of posts where people had acknowledged that the .4s have had a color change, and made note of the bb's imperfections. So are madbull .4s still considered a good heavy weight? Or is it best to just go with a high quality .30?

I used the Madbull .4s and .43s; I was less than amazed by them. Thy give OK performance if you wash them. However, for high quality heavy weights I would go with Bioval. I have had amazing results from their .3s, and I have heard that they are working on some new stuff either .4=/+ or dimpled BBs.

What if I added in environmental factors? Living in southern cali, the wind likes to pick up all the time.

.4 Biovals are your best bet, I think(?) they're Tan in colour. Anything below a .36 will be greatly effected by the wind and since this isn't real bullets we're shooting predicting the flight path of a spinning spherical BB can be difficult.

If your budget isn't too much, I'd pick up some Bioval 0.30g AND MadBull 0.40g and try both out and see how you like them. You're right, the environmental factors and the way your gun shoots might give you a different experience than others.

I've used MadBull 0.40g and while they are certainly far from the best, they did well in my high FPS set-up and I was pleased with the results.

When I tried the Madbulls (0.4 and 0.43) the issue I was having wasn't range as much as accuracy. The range was actually very consistant (in terms of force and where they were dropping) but the goups were relatively large, and there were always fliers. This would probably only be amplified by wind.

If youre in the LA area it would probably be worth stopping by Evike or Airsoft GI and just get a few bags, I think AEX Torrence had a sample bag with different weights and types in it when I was there... years ago.

I do want to point out as I have in the past that the .40g Madbulls have quite a few "micro" dents and very inconsistent air bubbles in them. This is due to the soft nature of the actual material used in the BB.

Whelp, biovals are on the way. Have about half a can of madbulls left to put them up against.

Did a rather informal accuracy test today at 65 feet. Shot maybe around 10 shots. All landed in a nice tight grouping except for the 4 fliers.

I also live in the verifiable airsoft deadzone none as the Menifee area. All the major stores are 50-100 miles in either direction. So no sampler packs from AEX. Happuly the local store occasionally stocks madbulls.
