I was going through some pellets today and was trying to determine how many pellets to order in the not so distant future. I was curious how many pellets I feel comfortable keeping in stock before I feel the need to order more.
Looks like I usually keep around 8000-9000 each of .177 and .22. I don’t get to shoot my Condor as often so generally 2500 in .25 is good. Much less than that and I feel the need to stock up.

What do you guys usually have kicking around?

Looks I didn't really count my pellets before... Will do that now and report...

But it looks I didn't especially to buy / stock up pellets in a shopping, I usually will buy some tins together with other purchase once a while... However it looks there is not much other items / guns I would buy in the near future, I think I will need to think about the question... Maybe about 3000 each?!

I get sleeves (10 tins) of JSB Exacts and Exact Heavies from Sniper Dan. My Streamline gets very hungry.

I am richer than I think..... I now have about 7000 of 177 and 5000 of 22 i hand....

And the 'worst' I found is my ammo box is not full yet, and 4 tins other pellets I want to try in the shopping cart which I will pay and ship out next week...

Fishguy, you are right... Keeping 7k to 8k in hand is the basic line to keep us feeling comfortable ... Like I like to keep my refrigerator full of food otherwise an empty one will make me feel nervous...

Need to shoot more to consume the old stock and keep fresh stock instead ~ [emoji480][emoji480]

I try to keep two months supply of each pellet I'm currently shooting at about 2000 shots per month. I keep about 1000 count of pellets I want to try in the future. Quite a few partial tins of pellets I tried but do not like hanging around. I haven't counted but something like 10-15k of pellets in inventory at the start of a month.

My last order was a month ago and it was 20 tins of .177cal H&N FTT. My supply of good pellets was getting low. I also have about 20 partial tins of various pellet types that have accumulated over the years. I use these for testing and curiosity.

Imagine the media reports if an airgunner were to get raided.
"20 guns, 10,000 rounds of ammo seized in raid"

LOL - you are a little short on powder burners, as well as being short, just on the .22 RF ammo, then there's a couple thousand .17 RF, then from .172's to .50 cal. CF, some more thousands and on top of all "those", 'some' thousands of pellets & bullets from .177 to .25.
