I have the .28 Elite Force but was looking for a heavier Bio to use with my RHoped rifles.

hs5 has enhanced mag followers available. between them and some finesse with your mags (cleaning up any poorly cast flashing in the channel, etc) you should be able to feed anything at any speed.

Heavier weight is only good if it is consistent, and I have yet to find a heavier weight bio BB than .28 that are consistently round and shoot the same on every shot.

I have tried the Bioshot and found them lacking, if you just reach in an grab a handful (at least in the batch I had) you could see the differences in your hand and pick out BB's that did not look like the others.

A .28 BB that shoots the same way every time is worth more to me than inconsistent heavy weight BB that gives slightly more distance.

They want $15 USD plus a minimum of $13 USD for shipping for 5 little pieces of plastic. Seems a bit ridiculous to anybody else?

I've been using .30 madbull non-bio (i know i know, madbull, but hear me out) in my ptws and they've actually been REALLY goddamn consistent.

that's shapeways' problem, they're just jerks. clandestine airsoft stocks them and I think hs5 stocks them as well and they'll just mail it to you. the cost itself is pretty reasonable including printing and r&d.

$13 for international shipping? No, that doesn't seem ridiculous at all.

I have some of those followers in my p90 mags, they wont' work with the bad batch of bioshots. It's improved, but not fixed.

Intl shipping of I box I could see $13 but these little things can fit into an envelope.

that's the way it works. it's a flat rate shipping I believe try adding more hs5 stuff to your cart.. a lot of it is pretty useful.

Talking

This is extremely helpful and I will give it a go. One of the folks on this post cites Bioshots specifically so I am very hopeful.

I will post my results for future reference.

Thanks
