Bioval makes .4g, but finding them in stock online is like winning the lottery. They are always out of stock whenever I try to find them. Plus they come in packs of only 500 bbs, but cost over 20$.

I use bioshot .3s and they work fine for me. Their tolerances are so tight they work perfectly for me.

I haven't use heavy bios but had some excellent results with Bioval BBBMAX .27g!!
The quality is superb, they are clear but you can see them easy especially if it's a sunny day!
While the opponent can't see them, through the scope looks like they glow!!

I'm 80% sure Bioval stopped making them because they were known to be way harder then plastic BB's because they are made with silica, and some fields and big events ban them.

You're unfortunately not going to find any .36 and up bb that are bio.

Bioval did make .40's, but they weren't actually biodegradable, despite the fact that the company bases most of its marketing on the fact that they make bio bb's. And, they also stopped producing them, so you aren't going to find them anymore. They've also been said to have been "meh" in quality, about on par with Madbull super heavy bb's (.40) in quality. They have air bubbles inside, and are the usual 5.98 mm size, rather than the 5.92 mm size that Bioval makes all of their other bb's.

Also, Bioval .27's have constantly been under scrutiny for being "harder" than other bb's, meaning they're more dangerous, as stated before. Lots and lots and lots of evidence. Here's a thread we had going on ASR about a year and a half ago on the .27's when Bioval's were all the rage: http://www.airsoftretreat.com/forums/index.php?topic=98930.0. Here's also a video comparing .27 Biovals to regular .25's:
). I've had absolutely stellar performance with them. I haven't personally used .32, .30 or .28 Bioshots, but everyone else seems to love them (Bioshot .32: http://hivemindairsoft.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=181 Bioshot .30: http://hivemindairsoft.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=180 And, for some reason, I can't find any Bioshot .28's in stock anywhere, so you'll have to wait :/ ). Bioval .27's are extremely good as well, though you may run into people who will protest their use, either for their hardness or the question of their biodegradibility.

Other than that, I'm actually extremely curious on the performance of Action Army bb's. They run at the 5.95 mm size, .03 smaller than regular bb's, but .03 larger than Biovals.

Where to buy them: http://www.lawingsinc.com/Airsoft-BBs-BBs-Loader-s/1822.htm or lawingsinc's Ebay.
They offer a .28 bio bb, as well as other waits that aren't bio like .30's and whatnot. In particular, I want someone to try out their superheavy weights (.36 and above). They're still 5.95, which would put them at the smallest in the superheavy category, which is a good thing.

Actually I know they are harder, but I'm not sure they are discontinued.
I have 3 bags of .27's so I'm not worried for now!

BBastard discontinued their bio .29's about a year ago and I've heard some great results for them also.

Bioshot .3s are much cheaper than bioval and I've tried both with the same results. Once I loaded them I couldn't tell the difference. Shipping can be a pain but that's why I order in bulk. You have to order directly from their website.

I happen to recall that .27's from Bioval were actually made for extra penetration in PTW guns. The army needed something to shoot through glass with, for training purposes.

i'm not entirely sure though.

Elite Force makes a .32g BIO that is tan in colour. I have been using their .28 bios recently and have been impressed.

Prefer BBBastards but finding them in any weight (BIO or not) around my area is next to impossible! They sell out so fast. Plus I have heard rumours that they are developing a heavy weight BIO.
