While you are well aware of what a BB gun is, you might not know that much about the history of this now iconic item. When it comes to BB gun BBs, this small item has a long history behind it. So how did BB guns get their name anyway? Very early designs of guns that shoot BBs used lead shot from shotgun shells and back then there were varying shot sizes from B to BBB. The first BB shooting guns used BB-sized shot and the term has stuck.

Since then the shot size and name have stayed pretty much the same. Daisy (around the year 1900) standardized the size of BB shot to 4.45 mm and today they use 4.5 mm (.177 caliber) airgun BBs. The industry has pushed the design of BBs for BB guns in recent years to make them safer and more effective. You can now find a wider selection of metal BBs, such as; copper BBs, steel BBs, lead BBs, or any combination of metals along with a variety of coatings such as anodized BBs or zinc BBs that reduce friction and increase velocity. There are also low ricochet options such as frangible BBs that break apart and Smart Shot BBs that will flatten upon impact.

What are BB's made of?

BB's have a long history of materials, diameter, and even weight in the long history of their use. The BB started off as your typical birdshot for a smoothbore shotgun. Made out of lead and measuring at 4.3-4.4 mm, these were mass produced, but there were always inconsistencies in the BB due to the loose restrictions on shotshells. It wasn't until Daisy started making their own 4.4 mm "round shot" that the uniformity of the BBs increased and started to turn into what we use today. Your modern standard BB is made of steel or lead and formed into its spherical 4.4mm shape and then coated in either zinc or copper to help stop corrosion and help the BB's consistent accuracy.
