Just at the PA in Kitchener, they had the Grizzly .177 pellets, 500 cnt for $2.99. Great for plinking at targets, cans etc.
Bought a few packs. :lol: :lol:

Depends on what you are looking for I guess, mes4u2c. I opened a tin of them and in looking them over, didn't see 2 with perfectly round skirts in the visible pellets. Some with badly crushed or dented rims, slightly out of round, grossly out of round - so much so, I opened another tin and they were similar. The RWS R10's, albeit much more expensive, were all perfect in the tins.
Depends on what you want, I guess. With that in mind, some guys are satisfied with BB gun accuracy and even compare different makes of BB's for accuracy - that's what makes the world go round - variations in products and differing requirements.

Yes, I know they are not perfect, but for general plinking, they are ok.

I've bought a tin of those too for the same reason, plinking.
I have a lot of different pellets in my collection but I generally use the ones that the most common, readily available and cheapest (Crosman's) for plinking.

This summer I hope to be able to sit down some lazy Saturday afternoon with a six pack of beer (drinking responsibly of course), my collection of pellets, my Chrony, a new target and my favorite air rifle and gather some data.

Ive had two or three pellets in a tin with some imperfection to the skirt other than that cant really complain for the price.
