Question KA bbs any good?

No idea where to post this soooo.

I found that walmart (DON'T stop reading yet! give me a chance!) now carries King Arms Platinum BBs. Now normally I wouldn't even think about buying bbs from walmart but KA is a semi reputable company and I've heard these bbs are alright. I was wondering if anyone here on ASC has had the chance to try out these bbs and if you have what you thought of them.

(And the reason I mentioned walmart is that they have freaking free shipping! the only reason I'm thinking of buying the bbs from them)

I've got a bottle of king arms .30s sitting here and they're crap
There's a dimple on each one of them from where they sat to dry
Pretty soft, too

I personally use KAs and have been for the past year or so now. No issues what so ever with them. I've gotten the same results using Bastards, Madbulls, etc.

I just recently bought 8 bags of the KA Platinum bbs (.28s) from the US Walmart since I went down there for a trip. If you are planning on going to the States anytime soon, you'll be saving quite a bit than buying in country. I think I ended up spending like $90 total so, $11.25 for 3600 rounds.

Well I won't be using bios, apparently my gun hates them and I live in a basement which is too damp to keep them in anyways. (now if their non-bios are also soft we have a REAL bad problem. :O

so with that plus http://www.airsoftforum.com/board/Ki...e-t226487.html I'm getting some really mixed reviews...therefor I'm going to take my chances and just buy the non-bio .25s (I mean with free shipping, to me it's worth it).

Thanks for the input guys!

I personally use Elite Force exclusively on all my airsoft guns, I have found them to be more accurate and jam the least. Although I have tried some KA green gas, it worked quite well.

Bastards BB's don't jam at all on my guns

Hmm, I will have to try those. I have only played in Canada once or twice, as I am from Cali where we don't have Bastards BBs.

I played with the bio ones mainly. I dont particulary like them. They is a sort of mold line on some of them and elite force / G&G bb fly much straighter for the same price. However there is much worse bbs than king arms.

These are the USA retailers who carry BB Bastards already, you should tell your supplier they need to get on the list!

I run BB Bastards 99% of the time, what about the 1% you ask? The 1% is where a game forces me to use their BB's and only theirs.

And I've tried pretty much every BB out there, none of them match the quality of the Bastards, especially when I am still running 4 year old BB Bastard Bio's this spring from a huge amount I bought with zero issues.

Thanks! There are quite a few local retailers where I live, so I try to support them as much as I can. Will definitely tell them about BB Bastards.

You are in a market 10X the size of ours. This is why Elite Force is more common.

It is not unusual for companies the size of Elite Force who is owned by an actual gun company (Walther Firearms over UmerexUSA) focus their marketing budgets where the majority of sales are.

Cue the people here who believe "but Canada is big man"

No...its not.

We have one place in Canada that has really big games.

This is just one game in the state of California (population of Canada) at one location.
