Not me, but I'll jump in here and introduce you to another possible source: our very own camacho8218. Maria has not been on for a while, but she's well-known by many members as being an excellent source of top-quality, well-priced bulk C02 carts.

You can reach her here; click the PM button in the lower left quadrant of this page:

Has anyone tried these two brands of 12 gm CO2 (i.e. Valken & Mosa)? Any idea how they compare to Umarex, Crosman, Swiss Arms, & Tactical Crusader CO2?

Haven't tried the Valken, but I've purchased hundreds of Mosa (both 8g and 12g) from Maria. They're nice. They have a smooth body that doesn't give that fingernail-on-chalkboard feel like I get with Crosman, so they feel nice to handle. Also, the neck to the nozzle is smoothly contoured and doesn't have the sharp lip like the Crosman, so they are apparently friendlier on seals than Crosman too.

For about 5 years I have used the 8g cartridges almost daily in a soda charger during the summer months. Good stuff - very consistent from bottle to bottle and the price is right.

I wish somebody would make a little 8g CO2-powered pellet shooter modeled after those tiny Bond Arms derringers, I'd be all over that...

Split a case of 500 from Maria with a few guys from the forum almost 15 years ago, I'm on my last box now (don't shoot many guns that use carts). They have been great, still good after all these years.
Anyone in Toronto want to go in on an order? PM me in if interested.

We could have bought 200 or 250... with the Hellboy and Crosman DPMS SBR coming, I'm gonna need a LOT of CO2

Had a very VERY good experience with Maria. I will keep her number for my next purchase. Highly recommanded from me.
