Oh ok, well i got that form wikipedia, here is the quote
""BB" in this case stands for "Ballistic Ball""

Here is the first line of the history part
"While it is often stated that "BB" stands for "ball bearing", this is not the case."
on my case of .177 bb's it says ball bearings. I mean what does it matter?

It doesn't matter, its just i knew BB stood for something and it told me something on wikipedia, it could be right, it could be wrong, or both could be right.
