Hi all,
Not sure if this is the best forum for this question so please feel free to redirect me.
I am trying to buy some target shooting grade air rifle pellets (ie. RWS / H&N, professional line/competition grade, .177)
in bulk (25 000+) and I am shopping around for the best price. If any of you are retailers/wholesalers or simply have seen a decent price recently. Please let me know. :D :D

Thanks and happy shooting

Could be that I'm the only one who doesn't know, but...what the heck is "target shooting grade"???

What shoots best out of your rifle/pistol?

As for decent prices...Princess Auto had .177 jsb's on clearance a few weeks back...I "clearanced" them right out of stock. $6.93/tin for 7.33gr RS

H&N Pellets, including their target grades, in several head diameters, are available on eBay at....

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Your-one-stop-H- ... 7dbe82bed7

The vendor is "nikkonos" and he is great to deal with.... How any given pellet shoots out of YOUR gun, of course, is something you should determine before buying 25,000 of them.... I would think he could quote you a "bulk price"....

To reply to Gippeto and anyone else who's wondering. Target grade means competition quality wadcutters for olympic style ISSF ten meter target shooting. I agree that it should be whatever shoots best out of your gun but these are not for me, they are for a shooting club that has a variety of equipment for it's members, from Feinwerkbau to Walther to Morini and Steyer and we don't have the luxury of pairing pellets to equipment. We leave that to members who own their own guns.

Nikkonos is great to deal with but doesn't have the best "bulk" prices.

best bet is to buy a JSB sleeves from the forum stone best price shipping anywhere.

I got 3 X 10 sleeves in last few years.

Have you contacted the major dealers -- Airgun Source, D&L Airguns, Specialty Shooting Sports, Scopes and Ammo -- and requested a "bulk price"? You might get a good one from any or all of them.

You may also try Tesro, I don't know if they offer any bulk price, but it's worth a try.

For "club" use, using "club" equipment, I'd give serious consideration to the H&N Sport. I've been using them for the last two years as training pellets...

Nikkonos more often than not has the best price on H&N. To get a bigger discount, you'd need to order more than 25,000... as many shooters will order them in 5,000 sleeves.

I'm going to check over our price lists at work and see if I can put together a quote for you. Do you want "match grade" pellets.. I.e individually sorted by batch and weight or are you ok with like.. rws or jsb precision wadcutters? I could even put together a variety for you if you'd like. Just shoot me a PM with a little bit more info
