Hi all

A mate of mine was in his garden the other day shorting and a bucket witha towel in side then started to refill from the used bbs.

I said I hear this isn't a good idea as u may jam or damage the barrel. But his argument was most hit the towel and look fine.

I said I don't think it's just the impact that stresses the bbs but also the firing.

Am I right in this.

Up to you if you want to risk it but I wouldn't personally.

Your right because the force of the air coming out and the fact it is bouncing around the barrel destroys it plenty of rwasons really

TBH I do sometimes reuse BBs but only in 40mm Grenades where fragging doesn't really matter.

I've reused BBs loads of times and I've never had a problem.

 

Obviously if they've got visible imperfections like cracks or chips off them, or if they're caked in dirt or sand or something, then I leave them out. But if they look fine, chances are they probably are.

 

That said, buying 3000 BBs and then never using any other ammo, ever, wouldn't be a good idea lol.

 

Only ever reuse them once if you're going to at all.

Basically Anything can go in a M203 40MM used or unused and the same for grenades including .12's and the dodgey BB's that are included when you buy a new gun otherwise only .20's and higher for their first run through.

In higher spec guns with higher tolerances it will probably cause problems- and you're best off not even trying anyway as there's always a chance, besides ammo is so cheap that there isn't really any need too (I mean 3000 for ~£8 so its not like you're likely to run out :P)
