What are the best weight bb's for my AEP?

Well i just got an airsoft electric pistol. It shoots around 250 fps with .2g bbs. Using .2, the bbs go in a completely straight line but drop at about 60 ft. Using .12, the bbs go about 7 ft farther, but curve alot. I currently have a pack of 5000 .12g bbs and a pack of 3000 .25g bbs. Should i use the .12s, .25s, or get some .2s? (I perfer not getting .2s)

Please Help

    Since you prefer not getting any .2s, then use the .25s. The .12g BBs are basically for low-end spring guns, and barrel-free grenades only. Don't quote me on this, but I think the hop-up is preset to .25g BBs on actual AEPs; if I had to guess, the ideal weight would either be .25 or .23. I could be wrong, but it couldn't hurt to use your .25s.

    The real question however is if it's an actual AEP or an airsoft pistol commonly mistaken to be an AEP, the EBB. Ask yourself this: Does the slide move when the gun is fired? If it does, then go ahead and use your .12g BBs, because electric blow-backs aren't worth trying to care for. Although they are technically AEPs, which I believe stands for "Automatic Electric Pistol", they do not perform anywhere near true AEPs, such as the CYMA CM030 Glock 18c or the Tokyo Marui line of AEPs.

    But of course, you probably already knew that, since you own a bag of .25g BBs.

    No I haven't seen Makosi since she left BB. Any links?? Regarding Whipass, I've never met her so don't know what size she is, and to be honest, can't see why it matters
