Would lightweight 0.12 gram airsoft BBs work well in mines?
It really depends on the mine. 0.12 gram BBs would be okay on any mine with a catapult style launcher or mines with a large BB projection area.
Would you recommend 0.12 gram airsoft BBs in airsoft grenades?
No, they are too light and are poorly made and polished. This will cause jamming and the grenade will not deploy as effectively. 0.20 gram BBs will work much better.
