    Bad BB's for PCing

    I ran out of BB's so I bought a box of Maximum Precision from wally world.
    They didn't work for PC'ing but stuffed into an old sock they worked great as a gun rest.

    What brand do you use?

    I don't even remember the brand name, they glow in the dark though.
    it's all an educated guess,,,, till the trigger is pulled.

    Those are exactly what I use .25 grain and they are (Black) ,but when my Harbour freight (Red) powder coat gets old nothing works so I get new powder and everything is good again

    I don't know what 'brand' Smoke sent me, but they work great, just like his powder. Why mess with what has worked for so many??

    I've used the wally black ones as well as the translucent green, both work for me.

    I have had good result without using ASBB'S
    Even better when I heat the boolits up a bit before coating.
    Both way work well. To each his own.
