Why a max BB weight

Post by Arginj » 05 Feb 2019, 17:11

Yeah, so since my other thread (viewtopic.php?f=208&t=9469) was closed without answering this question I'm opening a second thread.

The question is: why don't you allow heavier BBs than 0,3 g for class 1-4 (and 0,43 for higher classes)? I don't see any logic in this at all.

We with the team did a lot of testing on joule and BB weights.
On this data you can see how different rifles react on different bb weights.

This is the video about those tests and explaining the data:

I am well aware of Joule creep and the such. I still wonder why there’s a max BB weight (0,3 and 0,43).

The answer from Berget crew (can be found in the general questions thread): "I do not have the answer for you as of why, and when we change to Joule it will be removed is my guess."
