All right, I have started to relize the expensive nature of BBs and was hoping that I could find a good deal getting about 10-20 thousand. I searched around the U.S. sites and found, what to me, was a very inticing offer. They offered 15,000 BBs for about 30 bucks. They say that they are manufactured by ICS, but I wanted to be sure. Are these BBs reliable or are they faulty and should be avoided.

Heres the link: ICS BBs (http://www.airsplat.com/Customkititems.asp?CartId={FF7FDA56-3EVEREST8B0-4402-9098-0CDC60C1D75C}&kc=B2-5000-3)

-Thanks for the help,

You sure that's right? From how I read it, its $33/5k, and if you buy 10k (which comes to $65), you get 5k free. . .

Thats what I thought at first, except if you look at the item above the "special offer" you will find 5k for ~12 dollars. http://airsplat.com/Items/B2-5000.htm

Description
Buy 2 1 KG 5,000 rounds of 0.2 g BB's and get 1 FREE!!
Very High Grade Precision White BB's
Manufactured by ICS
They are selling single bags for $12.95, but then they are selling two for $31.90 ($15.95 each) to get the third bag free.
Price per BB?
$12.95/5000 = $0.00259
$31.90/15000 = $0.00212
With their special offer, you basically save $6.95 if you're willing to buy 15,000 at a time.

ICS price for a bag of 3500 is $11.17 -> $0.003

I have never used these Airsplat ones, so I can't speak any further to them, but I question what goes into unmarked bags.

Ahh. . . okay. . . I see the bundled pricing now. . . at first it wasn't very clear, since they listed it twice. . . one for 1pc and one for 3pc. . .

Hmm. . . 15,000 rounds for ~$30. . . very tempting. . . so you're going to try it out and let us know the results, right boombaby? :AR15:


but I question what goes into unmarked bags.

Isn't that akin to comparing brand name cereals and Malt-O-Meals at the supermarket? Don't get me wrong, I'm curious as to the level of quality as well. . .

O, sorry about that. Ive been away for awhile, but yes I have used them. They seemed a little light but that might have been my hop up. I dont know how they will hold up against heavier upgrades though.
