Is there a shop/store that carries tins/boxes with a higher than a 175 count in the lower mainland/Fraser valley?

Depends on which pellets you're shopping for, but Army & Navy carries a few types in 250 per tin. Reliable Guns usually has at least .22“ Hobby in 250 count tins as well as some Crosman and a really cheap Chinese knock-off of Meisterkugelns.

I have those for plinking, though they vary in exact size, my Optimus seems to really like the JSB Exact in 4.52,would like to find some .22 pellets in 5.52-5.53 size for the meets(i'd LOVE to get some polymags in .22)

While we are on the subject of pellets (.22) I just picked up a 500 tin of Premier hollow point from Canadian Tire....there is no pellet weight listed on the can at all;
Couple of questions, How do you guys like these pellets for general use, plinking, pest control?
Does anyone know the weight of these pellets? I find it strange they do NOT list the pellet weight in the same line they say "premium pellets" LOL, and help would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys!

Crosman is bad for that with their standard pellets, the .22 pointed, hollow point and domed are all 14.3 grain. The hollow points respond well in crosman airguns, for plinking. Though a test with many different pellets is needed for best accuracy as far as hunting and pest control, note that limited airguns for Canadians will NOT cause the hollow points to expand. It seems that approximately 600 fps or more is needed to get the pellets to deform reliably.

I put this in the where to buy in Canada section a few days ago.if you like the Crossman premiere hollowpoints .22 [500 count] get over to walmarts; they are on sale for $10.00 a tin and Crossman co2s 15 box are also $10.00. they are getting out of the gun products. and also the Crossman phantom .22 is on sale for $75.00

I like the Crosman Premium HP's for occasional plinking, since they're easy to find around here, but my favourite .22 pellets are the domed RS Exact (13.43g). High quality control, and consistent sizing. For paper punching, I generally use RWS Hobby's and Meisterkuglns- also good for weight and size consistency.
Lots of selection in the Forum store, or the other on-line dealers like D&L or scopes and ammo...

The Crossman .22 HP's seem to shoot fairly well in a lot of different .22's, PPC and Springer.

I expect the Crosmans are also the de facto standard for testing tuning progress as they're relatively inexpensive compared to running hundreds upon thousands of JSB pellets across a Chrony. Don't see too many FT guys shooting Crosman pellets as the accuracy probably isn't quite up to the same level, though it may come close out of some airguns. But for getting a PCP tweaked, running dozens of strings over the sensors and making small adjustments or big ones between strings, it can be handy using a cheaper pellet... then going to the intended hunting or competition pellet for putting the final polish on the tune.

Amazon has a very good selection of pellets and other air gun products. Lots of UTG. Just picked up a very nice bi-pod and I'm very happy with it.
