    Did you just answer your own question?

    EDIT: Sorry my phone screwed up for a second there.

    First of all, try to use proper grammar and spelling, it will make it alot easier for people to help you. Secondly, I would recommend a soft bucking. It's not as durable as a hard bucking, but will most likely give better accuracy and range.

    Hard bucking seems unnecessary under 500 FPS, because at that level your going to wear down bucking quick, also it's actually called a hop up rubber, the bucking is actually what everyone calls a nub. I would suggest to use soft, hard is putting unnecessary pressure on the bb, and the accuracy of softs like nor said is phenomenal.

    -Edit- I would suggest madbull blue or g&g green hop up rubbers

    Er, what? Hop up rubber = bucking. The nub is a nub, not the bucking.

    I suggest the softer 50* bucking because of the lower fps. A hard bucking won't grip the bb as well as a hard bucking.

    I've hear people from Ireland say it as he said it.

    Well, the rest of the world calls it a bucking and nub, most importantly, the makers of the products.

    Your point? I'm not contesting that a hop up rubber is a bucking, I'm saying that a nub should not be called a bucking. It's confusing terminology.

    My bad. Got confused. I'm just saying it depends on who you are talking to.

    It is actually correct terminology, like Levi said it does depend on who your talking to, in Europe, the "nub" is called the bucking, that's what I'm use to calling it, but, the majority does call the rubber the bucking and the bucking the nub
