Another Toronto question..... this city stinks for airguns. That being said, I still hope someone would guide me in the right direction.

I checked out the famous Al Flaherty's today, and it was a wasted trip. They ran out completely.

The pellets I am looking for are RWS Superdome .22 14.5 / RWS Superpoint .22 14.5

Where do you get a tin without having to pay double (in some cases triple) the price for delivery?

ARK Army Surplus ran out as well as per their website.

Thanks all

Vortex ,
I would try some crosman pellets in the pistol you have in your signature. Also pointed pellets normally don't shoot too well . You can try Nicks sports on young street they may have what you're looking for . Depending what your shooting at and with what your shooting them from ,may change . From a pistol I would try to get my hands on JSB match (wadcutters) or exact RS. Since I discovered JSB pellets from Dan at the forum store , I haven't bought anything else .

Bass Pro Vaughan maybe?
If you know what you want, you may as well get half a dozen or so tins by mail order. The postage will not be much more than you will spend in gas driving around looking in stores.

Thanks for letting me know about Nick's store. It's right beside my work and I didn't know about it.

I have been using JSB pellets which I just ran out of and they weren't my favorite. The fit in the barrel was too loose and on one occasion a pellet fell out of the barrel without me noticing, causing me to dry fire this springer.

Superdome pellets seem to be praised by people who shoot out of HW45/P1. Pointy pellets are good for short range target piercing.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover SAIL in Etobicoke. It's amazing how I haven't heard of it before, given the size of the store. They didn't have very big selection of pellets at the time but I did score couple of tins of Crosman's. The rep told me they have a lot coming in soon. He also gave me a bunch of samples to try out to see what I like the best... very friendly fella.

Princess Auto have pellets. But slim pickings. Crosman and their store brand (Grizzly) pellets. I use to see JSBs there also, but only .177

If you're particular about your pellets, and you know what you want, contact sniper at the CAF store and ask for a quote (including shipping) for a sleeve of your chosen pellets (ie., RWS Superdome .22 14.5 / RWS Superpoint .22 14.5) - he'll even give you 50-50 for a sleeve order.

I must agree with earlier posts recommending against pointed pellets (unless you're sure they really shoot well in your gun - which they occasionally do), but, contrary to popular belief, they do not have notably, if any, superior penetration over domed pellets.

If you know what you want - meaning you're prepared to commit - sniper Dan has highly competitive, if not the best, prices.
