well that's a hard one! they tecnicly can be reused but there soo cheap its not worth the jam of ur gou

The problem with reusing bb's is that they gather dust/dirt from the first time they are shot and hit something, which is then deposited in your gun. They also might get slightly misshaped, further causing problems. Both of these things can cause damage to you hop up chamber, and eventually lead to jams because of dirt build up in the barrel. If you are using a tight bore barrel I would say absolutely don't reuse bb's. If you have a good hop up unit I would also say absolutely don't reuse bb's. If you have a gun with no hop up and a large diameter barrel (6.06mm and bigger) it should be fine though. Also, spring guns are not affected as severely, so that should be fine too.
