Review this product
27 June 2008  

Things I liked: Mostly biodegradable. Very affordable biodegradable solution for grenades, shotguns, and mines.
Things I would have changed: Polish off the manufacturing marks--injection dimples and molding seams.
What others should know: These are very inconsistent in flight. Not surprising since they are anything but smooth; every one I've looked at has visibly identifiable surface imperfections--raised dimples at the injection point, seam lines, etc. At least one in five turns out to be a flier. Not recommended for use in any good quality AEG.

Things I liked: acts and performs like normal plastic ammo
Things I would have changed: lower the price a little mabye to 10$
What others should know: if your looking for a reasonably priced bio degradable ammo that looks and performs like normal plastic ammo this is what you want trust me ( and one other thing i havent acually witnessed this ammo degrade so it might be a little iffy as far as it biodegrades or not but thats fine with me because on the carton it says biodegradable so if someone gets mad at me for laying in their backyard i can SAY its biodegradable.

Things I liked: Great value. Good performance. They're not biodegrable per se, but it's still better than using standard pellets.
Things I would have changed: A slightly more durable outer shell.
What others should know: These aren't really biodegrable in the true sense of the word -- a more accurate description would be "frangible." Meaning they break apart into smaller pieces faster and easier than other pellets. I put a few into a jar of water and set it in my back yard -- there has been no perceptible change even after six months. Some sort of mechanical action is required to (literally) break these pellets down; mere exposure to bacteria, sunlight or water will not affect them. If they land in your driveway, they will be crushed underfoot into smaller -- and eventually, near-invisible -- pieces. If you shoot them into your pool, well, you're going to have to fish them out sooner or later. Being more fragile than standard pellets will, of course, cause some problems. You can easily etch a crease into a pellet's surface with a fingernail. If you shoot them against a hard surface from an AEG, they will shatter into (two or three) pieces. Other reviews have mentioned feeding problems because of this issue, although personally I haven't run into it. If it really matters to you, bona fide biodegrable pellets do exist -- but of course, they cost more. Air Venturi "biodegrable" pellets strike a good balance between value and environmental responsibility, but be aware of their limitations. If you get yelled at for emptying your magazines in the great outdoors, you can at least claim that you're using biodegrable pellets. And that wouldn't be a complete lie.

Things I liked: They don't break in gun and are somtimes reusable. they don't dent of scrape when fired. all same size
Things I would have changed: a pour spout would be helpful.
What others should know: They biodegrade so they protect animals from eating them and dieing, They don't litter your yard and make it look trashy.
