CLEVELAND, Ohio -( Air Venturi, the leading manufacturer and importer of airgun, airsoft, and ammunition brands, is proud to announce the release of the revolutionary Dust Devil BBs, the world's first frangible .177 caliber BB.

Dust Devils are 10 percent faster than traditional steel BBs and shatter on impact with hardened targets for reducing ricochets and providing an overall safer shooting experience.

“Made right here in the USA, this new patent pending ammo is designed for dynamic shooting sessions where shooters don't have to worry about ricochet,” says Paul Milkovich, Air Venturi's Director of Business Development. “While frangible ammo has been popular with firearm shooters for decades, Air Venturi is the first company to produce a BB that leaves ricochets in the dust. Dust Devils are BBs perfected and we're sure backyard plinkers and indoor shooters will take notice.”

Dust Devil BBs disintegrate into tiny fragments that safely crumble and fall, instead of sending rounds bouncing back at the shooter. Its proprietary blend of special alloys create a round that shoots 10 percent faster and is completely lead-free.

Adding to Air Venturi's wide assortment of air guns, airsoft guns and ammunition, Dust Devil BBs will be available beginning in March 2018.

While other BBs dangerously bounce and ricochet off targets–Dust Devils go up in smoke!  Using a special alloy blend, these lead-free, ricochet-free rounds leave a wisp of powder instead of harmful lead headed back your way. Load up Dust Devils and Leave Ricochets in the Dust.

  • 10 percent Faster than Steel BBs
  • Shatters on Impact
  • Lead Free

    2. These BBs are great to shoot, make a distinctive sound when striking a steel plate and without the fear of ricochet.
      These BBs are magnetic therefore will function in airguns such the Daisy Red Ryder.

    3. These BBs are attracted by a magnet which means will function in airguns such as the Daisy Red Ryder.
