Fancy a BB that won’t bounce or ricochet off your target? Look no further than the Dust Devil from Air Venturi
Dust Devil BBs from US firm Air Venturi shatter just like frangible bullets upon impact with hard surfaces, minimising the risk of ricochets, which can be a problem with conventional steel BBs. These new 4.5mm BBs are made entirely of lead-free material. These characteristics work together to make them much safer for indoor shooting. The frangible BBs are made of a special sintered alloy and weigh 0.29 grams, which is less than the 0.36 grams of common steel BBs. Dust Devil BBs are about 10% faster due to this slightly lower weight.
Our continental readers will be pleased to learn that the Ohio-based manufacturer of these revolutionary BBs has given German firm H&N Sport the general agency for Europe – excluding the UK. We’ll keep you updated about when they become available here. Dust Devil BBs are offered by H&N Sport in two packages: 1,500 BBs in a cardboard box with a filling aid, and 750 BBs in the time-proven screw-on tin.
We picked up a sample tin from the recent IWA trade show in Nuremberg and put them to the test. Yes, they really do disappear in a puff of dust on impact!
