Any CO2 and BB's will fit the Beretta Elite II, Wal-Mart/Canadian Tire/Sporting goods store/Hunting stores etc.

Recommend Daisy BB's though. I would stay away from the Crosman copperhead BB unless that is all you can get.

Thank you for your time.

Canadian Tire doesn't have steel BB, Walmart sells only the gun, and have been to all the on-line stores.

"Any CO2 and BB's will fit the Beretta Elite II, Wal-Mart/Canadian Tire/Sporting goods store/Hunting stores etc."

Now, its instruction asks for steel BB; Can I use the lead ones or the ones coated in zinc?

Another thing I need help in understanding: When I find steel BB, at .177, but none are 5.5g...

I do appreciate your time, really do.

Lead ones might deform, they're not made to be used in mags like the one in the EliteII as Scruffie mentionned steer clear of the copper plated ones but ZINC coated ones are perfect and exactly what you're looking for.
.177 = 4.5mm / .22 = 5.5mm
5.5gr might refer to the weight in grains as steel BB's usually are in that weight range.
Here's airgun source BB selection:
http://www.airgunsource.com/store/index.php?c=325
but you shouldn't have a problem finding those big 6000 counts of BB's from Daisy or Beeman for around 10$ in big chain stores.
Do you have PrincessAuto close by?

Thank you DocGadget, I will order the one at airgunsource, as I have it below (Your link).

Umarex Precision Steel BB's - 1500ct
225-2549
In Stock!
.177 calibre BB's
4.5mm
1500 count
Precision grade steel


But, I am still not sure about it, and this is the reason why:

I have seen some steel BB's advertised just like this one without indicating the grain, and some others give different grains for the same caliber and metal. I am not sure about the grain of this, actually I couldn't find what grain my gun needs either!

And, I can only find Crosman Co2...


Regards

Weight/grains are not important in BBs, quality of the BBs is important! It isn't a match pellet rifle!
Your over thinking this! Load up, and go have fun! Don't shoot anything metal, cause steel/zinc BB's will bounce back!

Put a drop Pell Oil on your C02 when you install them!

Some Home Hardware stores stock Daisy BB's and CO2. I remember that in north end Fredericton there's a small hunting goods store that sells pellets, maybe they sell BB's & CO2 too. They're called Fredericton Outfitters & Anglers.

If you get a chance to visit Moncton sometime Princess Auto sells BB's.

I think this is your first air gun of any sort and your being extra cautious. No Problem! But just follow what the manual says. CO2 and BBs are generic. Doesn't matter what you buy they are all the pretty much the same.

Go buy some, have fun!

X2 I think you're over thinking this. Nothing wrong with this and no one is getting annoyed by you (if they are they're just skipping the thread as should be done).
Any 4.5mm or .177 (same thing) metal BB's will do. We're telling you to not buy the Crosman copper plated ones not because they won't fit or fire but because they're cheap and not as well made as the zinc plated ones. BB's are plated so they won't corrode/rust.
Like rrdstarr said don't shoot anything hard or the BB's will come back at you, ever heard "you'll shoot your eye out", that's what BB gun will do if you not careful. Safety glasses wouldn't hurt either, eyes don't grow back.
Any 12gram CO2 will fit in your gun.
Put CO2 in the gun, fill the mag with BB's, shoot until empty, repeat. That's all there is to it.
Empty soda cans were made to be shot at with BB guns.
