Most Airsoft beginners have a tight budget and almost run out of money after buying there favorite Airsoft Replica. I was in the same situation. I was so desperate to be able to buy my favorite replica that I forgot that I also need some (safety) gear and of course BB’s!!
Don’t fall in the trap to buy any low grade BB’s! These BB’s can cause real damage to your Airsoft gun. Besides that you should not use cheap BB’s that are mostly not spherical and cause jam or get stuck in the barrel. They will also damage your gearbox components when their break or scatter inside. Instead of low grade BB’s I recommend high quality BB’s which support the durability of your Airsoft replica.
Also know that I prefer biodegradable BBs because these BB’s are better for the environment.
Elite Force Precision 0.2g 6mm
Elite force BB’s have a high performance. The 0.2g BB’s are actually the best weight for most (beginner) Airsoft players. They are perfectly spherical and polished and very consistent. You can use these BB’s if your Airsoft replica shoot 280-350 FPS. As those BB’s don’t have any imperfections like dimples and seems, they are a durable choice for your Airsoft replica.

Elite Force 0.25g Biodegradable
I think I said enough about the quality of Elite. The difference here is the weight. These are typical mid-range BB’s and perfect for Airsoft replica’s that shoot 350 FPS or higher. With a slightly heavier BB, you can increase your accuracy and flight stability. Follow this link for the lowest price at Amazon.
ThunderBBs 0.36g Biodegradable
These are some heavier BB’s and perfect for your bolt action sniper rifle. These are high quality BB’s especially for modified replica’s that shoot at an higher FPS. The combination of a heavier weight and a higher FPS result in a accuracy and fly beyond standards. Follow this link for the lowest price at Amazon.
As I used Elite Force in the past, in general Goldenball seems to do it quite well. These BB’s are available in biodegradable and non-biodegradable. They have a variety of weights in the range of 0.2g – 0.45g. As I have not much experience with this brand, you can always try them if you are not satisfied with your current BBs.
