ASG Blaster Original 0.25g review

ASG Blaster 0.25g BB’s Review

Supplier:

These were supplied Directly from ASG warehouse in Denmark as soon as they received stock of the BB’s from the manufactures. All communications were fantastic as always and I highly recommend there services and products.

Packaging and shipping:

.Packaged well in the shipping box and dispatched using UPS, the ammo took 3 days via land to get to me but was actually ahead of the scheduled delivery date of Monday rather than today which is Friday.

First Impressions:

These bb’s look fantastic, there seems to be no giraffes in the bottle, no seam marks and unlike the 0.20g’s there are no proud injection marks. All the rounds are highly polished and free of contaminants. You can tell these apart from the 0.20g’s as these have a tint of light green to them.

Rifle test:

Test rifle was an standard internals Star SL8 firing 320fps with 0.20g BB’s,

Magazine used was a mid capacity magazine; the sample bb’s were loaded into the magazine with a speed loader. The first magazine all the bb’s went straight, until the hop dropped off at about 35-40meters (no adjustment to the hop on first firing) I did notice the bb’s at about 40 meters had a spread of under 1 meter. Fine tuning the hop I managed to get the range past 45m with these but no more than 50/60m but that did take a bit of patience to make sure it was consistent at that range.

Next I tested there consistency on a target at 25meters. The same magazine was used. The groupings achieved for 5 initial shots were 3” groupings from the standing unsupported position with all shots in that centre mass. The following 5 shots achieved 2” for 4 shots and 1 shot within 3” in the kneeling semi supported position, On fully auto 10 shots hit within 5” with 1 flier hitting about 2” away from the centre mass of 5”

Consistency testing:

I’ve tested a random sample of the Blaster 0.25g bb’s

Random batch of 3000 rounds supplied from ASG, random 100 bb’s from packet (bought in June 2009)

here are the results:

5.91mm

5.88mm

5.90mm

5.90mm
Range is from 5.87mm to 5.95 which is a variance of 0.08mm

so the bb’s are 5.91 +/- 0.04mm

I then did a weight test of another random batch with the results as follows
I used a grain scales but they kept fluctuating on grain due to not having a flat surface

so I put 100 bb’s on that were dry and not humid from being handled.

I got 23.95g

so that’s an average of 0.2395 g per bb.

Conclusion:

With the weight and tolerances slightly off I’m surprised at the great results these produce. The groupings were some the best I have seen for a while. If the tolerances had been slightly higher I would convert to these instead of 0.20g bb’s as these give great accuracy on full auto, even better on single but slightly loose the range over the 0.20g. These seem to be slightly less affected by the wind also which is good for semi only.

Rating:

Quality 8/10

Accuracy 9/10

Price 7/10

Consistency 7/10
