I keep about 3000 to 5000 pellets for every favored brand.

Definitely not single minded. In fact, after hour upon hours of experimenting with different pellet brands(Crosman, Daisy, Grizzly, Predator, JSB, RSW, H&N) and weights for all my air guns, I found that my co2 air pistols love the RWS Superdomes and JSB Exact Diabolo, 8.44gr. My .22 springer's true love is the JSB Exact Diabolo /Air Arms Diabolo Fields. My Pumpers true love is the RWS R10 Match 7.0gr and the RWS Superdomes.

I'm getting low on the .22 JSB Heavy, which I consider my "best" all around use .22 pellet~ about 1/2 way through my last 500 count tin.
I tend to wait for gun shows to get them. Shipping on .22 cal pellets is absurd, so I'll keep getting them where I can otherwise.

Still have 2 un-opened tins of both versions of the R-10 match in .177. Getting low on .177 meisters in the rifle version.

Got a lotta junk in the pellet box- stuff I'll buy cheap for plinking, and then end up not using. Some of it's getting heavily oxidized. Since when do I plink, anyways??? :? :rolleyes: I have all this money tied up in scopes, and am always looking for accuracy...

Pellet box is still kinda heavy though. Best guesstimate is about 6K of .177, and about 3K of .22.

Have no idea of how many pellets I exactly need to be comfortable. Got enough in the pellet box right now to be o.k. in a pinch...

This post made me really laugh. I thought do I really want to know how many pellets I have? Been in the hobby for a long time and bought a lot of pellets. So went downstairs to count and was not too shocked but maybe a little, grand tally was 129 tins (.177, .22, .25cal) 85% new full ones, so 60,000 pellets? :shock: One main reason is I bought a lot of the old style JSB pellets. I know some say there isn't a difference from the new ones but my guns say different so I stocked up.

That is excellent. I'm working towards a similar inventory but pellets seem to go quickly at my house.

Yes I'll admit I haven't been shooting that much lately, other hobbies, my son is heavy into archery, fishing, darts, and rc's so pellet guns have taken a back seat for now but that has to change. :wink:

After shooting powder burner and airguns for a few decades... Archery appears to be an Eco-friendly sport: I've been using the same 6 arrows for the last 3 years :drinkers:
Had to replace a few vanes and nocks, but still.

It looks a warehouse inventory house keeper role is important... None of us keep a good in / out record of our pellets, and this post just letting us everyone to count our pellets the first time?!

And it also looks none of us will slow down in purchasing more pellets even knowing we have 10k in the box??
