New BB type ???

One of my favorite retailer when I was playing paintball (who are also selling full-metal gun that can be modified to fire BB) has released a new "aerodynamic"
BB....

http://www.rap4.com/paintball/news/i...from=&ucat=12&

What did you think about this ? Remember, they can be only used in Rap4 guns and these guns have no hop-up system.

It wouldn't fit in out guns anyway, spare bolt action ones.

Pretty cool, the shells are disposable, not a bad idea for realism.

It may just be the one innovation paintball has over standard airsoft right now, ejectable shells.

dude, these rap4 are actually airsoft, they are making them now because they see the market is there for them.

They look cool, but the fins might cause a problem if the BB is jostled around during flight and strikes bare skin. Ow.

I wonder if they make anything heavier in that format, like maybe .36g or .43g....and if so, I wonder how far they'd extend the range and increase the accuracy of a sniper rifle...say, like a VSR-10 or M24.

Airsoft is so cool that they have to steal ideas.

shell ejecting airsoft guns have been around sense like 1977. MGC had a M16 VN that was shell ejecting.

Lame, IMO. Range wouldn't be anywhere close to that of a hop-up equipped gun.

Given the shape of the projectile, those fins probably cause more drag than any increase in performance. Those types of fins (like on mortars) are used to keep the shell from yawing, so it doesn't wobble in flight, and lands on the detonator -- and does so by inducing drag on the tail section.
