So I have a CA M15A4! What gram do you think is best for my gun and which brand? Also, it has no modifications.

0.2g is cheaper per round. 0.25g is slightly more accurate at range. It is a personal choice.

To me, AE is the better brand of those two. Both will definitely work fine for your AEG, so pick the one that you can get the cheapest.

Although this site does not depict which specific bb's you need you'll probably find it useful. (it's just my opinion, but i really think it'll help you out with choosing bb's.)

Edit: Also AustinWolv has a review (more so measurements) here: http://www.lonestarairsoft.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3956

I've had good luck using AE .25g BBs in my stock ICS/CA guns.

Bravo2 thanks for the link to that site! I decided to go with the .23 gram AE beacuse it's in between the .20 and .25 so I get the better accuracy without the slight loss of fps. :AR15:

You realize that you aren't actually losing "fps" per se. "FPS" is a measurement of muzzle velocity, but what really matters is muzzle energy, which is basically staying the same between .25g and .23g out of the same replica.

Of somewhat related subject matter, this may be worth some time reading:
