No, metal BB's are generally 4.5mm.

If you can confirm that the two caliburs are the same, you can go ahead and try for it. But do not attempt a 4.5mm bullet in a 6mm gun, because the result will be catastrophic for you & your gun.

How are airsoft bullets made?

The BBs made in the factory are almost flawless, making a homemade BB and using it would be very bad for your gun. One of the easiest ways to break your gun is by using bad BBs. Also do not reuse a fired BB or use .12g BBs in an airsoft gun unless it is a spring rifle or pistol. Make sure you use .12g BBs or higher. BBs are extremely cheap as they are only around $15.

Can you shoot metal bbs from an L96 airsoft sniper?

No, if you are talking about bb's for a BB gun. The BB's for an air rifle or BB gun wont even stay in a Magazine for an airsoft gun. Airsoft BB's are 6mm, air rifle bb's are much smaller. You will ruin an airsoft gun with the smaller metal bbs. But you can get aluminum 6mm pellets for an airsoft gun.
