Said to be one of, if not THE, best bb on the market, and at roughly 32 bucks a bag, they better be.

Well I think I will try them out. They really do look nice. The only problem, can you see them when you shoot them? I mean I like to see my groupings and adjust hopup that way.

The shooter can see them but the person being shot at can not, generally speaking.

I've been using them for a while now.

In my opinion - and that's all it is, opinion, no tests to back me up - the Bioval BBs are the best you can buy.

The .27 clear BBs are excellent. They fly very straight, they're very hard, and I've had no trouble with jams. I use 6.01 tightbores in all my guns, and with other BBs I had a few jams.

The Bioval .30s are even better than the .27s. They fly farther, hit harder, and are easier to see.

The .30 Biovals will frankly chop thru brush. There is NOTHING better than hitting a target thru some brush or twigs.

I prefer outdoor games, long rifles and distance shooting. So, a white BB is better for me. The clear .27s are great, but beyond 120 ft or so it can be tough to tell where they're landing. With the white BBs it's easier.

In my view, the "target can't see them coming" stuff is not so important.

Either way, I think you'll be happy with them. I think they're worth the extra money.

How much FPS do you have?
I would't get the same results as you, with 350FPS, would I?

My guns are all shooting around 400 fps, or sl higher. Maybe 405.

At some point the BBs can become too heavy. They fly like a wounded duck out of the barrel. For example, my M16 BR (my hottest gun, shooting 430) can't shoot those Madbull .43 BBs. They're just too heavy.

But it shoots .36s just great - until one of the gears lost a tooth while I was shooting full auto!

One suggestion might be to gradually work your way up from .20, and see how your gun performs. Go to .25 and see what you think. If it works great, maybe try some .27s.

It is clear that, given a certain FPS, a heavier BB will be less affected by drag and lose less energy as it flies. THis website goes thru a lot of tests to answer many questions about BB weight, velocity, wind, etc.

You just have to find that ideal weight for your gun.

I've settled on the Bioval BBs because they are very consistent and the accuracy is noticeably better than the other BBs I was shooting.
