Seriously... we buy Premiere's versus regular Crosman's so there is no noticeable differentiation between pellets...

The batch from which my current tin is a part has two distinct sizes...

slightly loose - and - almost 'too' tight...

How often does this happen?

You must have gotten a bad batch(maybe made on a Friday).
The Premiums really are more consistent than the lesser Crosman pellets, and I've never had a bad tin like yours. Do you have any other tins from the same batch?

No, bought a 175 ct of Premiere Pointed when I bout the Legacy just to see if the rifle would shoot. (was only $5)

Premiere HP had been a readily available CT standard 9 yrs ago and never had such variation.

Things happen - this is more of a shout-out, so if anyone else notices such variation - please mention it...

The ones that too loose, do they drop down significantly or still have some friction fit? I had one tin of Crosman Hollow Points, and I recall a handful of them literally dropped a few inches into the barrel of my NVD, only a few from that tin. On the average the Crosmans I have had so far tend to be snug or oversized.

I mean by comparison - thanks for the question, as I do try to report accuracy

- the 'loose' ones do not drop further into the barrel, but by comparison they too easily go in flush versus the tight ones which need pressure to go in flush.

My guess is this happened when something changed on the production line. New dies, new lead, a breakage or stoppage of some sort. i have no idea what, but something changed to have those two groups of pellets mixed.

Probably thousands went to the packaging line "mixed" like that...if your tin was packaged 30 minutes sooner, or 30 minutes later, they would still be different, but uniform in the tin.
