Based on a recommendation in another post in this forum I played with
.32g Milsim BBs
this weekend (didn't buy from evike, bought at local field, but those are indeed the exact BBs).
They chrono'd at 1.4J (same thing I see with .28g BBs).
Took me a bit to get the hop up dialed in but once I did they *seemed* to show better long distance accuracy and for sure when they made contact people called the hit immediately
Only downside is they are about 40% more expensive than the .28s (so a whopping $5...)
Curious to what ya'll prefer to use
Specs for my rig...

Normally play with 28s. This past event I tried EF 32s. Same as you, once I got the hop up adjusted (about 10.5 versus 9.5 for 28s) the bb's seemed to fly straighter and consistent. Price is a good bit more than 28s, so I may only use them in events where I need long range accuracy.

bear in mind, the heavier the bbs you use, the better the stability, though you will see a significant decrease in muzzle velocity. Up until you hit diminishing returns around .36g on standard 120m/s rig.

Being indoors I don't worry about foliage or wind and I want the BB to hit it's target sooner than later so I stick with .20grams EMG. The hop-up is around 2.5-3 and seem to travel pretty fart with stock krytac bucking, confirmed indoors with a Acetech tracer.
