What is the "standard" bb size
6mm Why do you ask? There are other sizes for some rarer guns.
That's what I thought
They are all 6mm, But the weight varies. It will say what ever weight was used to test your gun. For example, it will say: shoots 350 fps with .20g BB's. From my experience most test with .20g but it can be tested with any, so be sure to check.
Not true, there are 8mm bb's. Japanese made, if I remember correctly.
Yea I'm pretty sure they have an 8mm bb as well.
They have 8mm BBs. A lot of Marushin guns use them; such as there NBB DE, one version of their M500 shotgun, one version of their FN 5-7, once version of their Derringer, and their .44 Automag.
There are also, although extremely rare, 7mm BBs that were used in the pre-classic rifles such as the Masudaya Thunderbolt.
6,7, and 8mm are all I have ever heard of.
I think there may have been 5mm at one point in time, but I'm not 100% sure.
To be specific. Most BBs aren't actually 6mm. They are usually 5.98 or 5.95mm +/- .03
5.98 + .03 = 6.01 and 5.95 + .03 = 5.98 so no they are what they say they are
So you're saying that Levi is wrong?
Levi is actually correct.
I'm saying that based on his statement it was completely redundant
The variations are different. Sometimes it is +/- .03, sometimes it's +/- .05, sometimes it's +/- .02.
Echo-1 wooden BBs (April fools thing they did) were +/- .85 .
Now that's better (20 cats)
