Would love to see them in .36's, especially if they can be made to high consistency standards.

(Although a .34 would be nice to try)

That's a featherweight, even 8mm in .46g feel really light compared to the 6mm in 0.43g.

I'd love to use heavier BBs, but price becomes an issue at that point unless you're a sniper and only fire a few rounds per game. I use .28s in my AEGs, but only use .3s in my GBBs because of their substantially higher cost. I've tried .3s in my AEGs, and the resulting flight path is substantially more stable and consistent, but the cost is also significantly higher. For me, the liberal application of fire with .3s gets really expensive really fast. This may not be an issue for everyone, but I'm sure it is for many.

I'm not looking to start loading cannon balls into my shotgun. Besides, the lighter weight gives it a more inconsistent pattern closer resembling a real shotgun spread.

i would be happier if they got rid of the .2 and .3 entirely and replaced the .3 with something heavy such as a .34 or .36. the reason being, is that .3 are very expensive for what you get. .28 in terms of how they shoot vs. price vs. quantity is a really good buy. .30g bbb are used primarily for special guns, such as snipers and such. so, if only they spend the money on heavy weight bbs, why not bring in heavier weight? as for the removal of .2s, the only reason why i would ever use them is to chrono something. even CQB i would use .25s just to have a more stable flight path.

if you're to remove .2's altogether, unlikely, then why would you need them to chrony? just change your FPS limits to reflect .25's or heavier to keep it safe.

.20's and .25's are my biggest sellers by a far margin this year. I am going to see what kind of deal I can get but I might do .36 and .40 on a preorder basis - would people go for that? If I did it as a preorder I'd do special pricing on it.

You just picked them up from me yesterday, you haven't even used them in a game.

i know i would do a preorder. the heavier the better. my eventual Tanaka Kar98k shoots 377 with .3 on a nice day. with .34-.36 i am hoping for it to shoot around 330ish. With bbs of that weight traveling at that speed, i will have a great sniper's/WWII rifle.
