Airsoft Pellets Weight Affects Airsoft Guns Performance

The weight of your airsoft pellets affects the performance of your airsoft gun a lot. Every airsoft player wants their pellets to go long distance and have great accuracy. Although the gun itself is actually the main factor which affects your accuracy, the pellets also play an important role in determining the accuracy.

The most common pellets weight types are 0.12g and 0.20g. 0.12g pellets are often used in low end airsoft guns, for instance, the basic spring and electric handguns. However, most of them do work with the 0.20g ones. 0.12g pellets do not strain the guns’ internal systems as much as the 0.20g ones.

0.20g and 0.25g are best used with higher end airsoft guns. Although 0.12g pellets usually travel at higher velocities than heavier pellets, they also decelerate faster and are more likely to be affected by external environmental factors. On the other hand, weightier BBs have higher stability and accuracy than lighter pellets, but have lower velocity which makes them hard to achieve a significant distance. Airsoft players usually use 0.20g and 0.25g pellets over 0.12g because the latter is believed to be greatly inferior to the formers.

However, you should not use pellets beyond the weight 0.25g in standard airsoft guns although they are suitable for sniper rifles. Usually, a quality sniper rifle pellet weighs about 0.30g. The specifications of an airsoft gun must increase as a pellet gets heavier. The airsoft gun must be of a high quality and may need upgrades to support a 0.30g pellet.

The heaviest pellet of all is 0.88g which has a really low velocity and is made of steel. These pellets are not suitable for airsoft games but if you saw one anywhere, try to avoid yourself from being hit by these pellets at all costs.
