Pellet Storage solutions ?
« on: August 22, 2019, 09:25:46 AM »
When you have several different calibers of guns
and
the same gun can use multiple weights of pellets and be pellet picky
how
Do you folks store your pellets - ? pics, ideas etc....

I do things a little different. I have two .25 caliber airguns, and I shoot the same pellet in both. I have had the Marauder set up for thee 33 grainers. It did get to 58 FPE, but the groups weren't very good. Since I use different (repurposed plastic tool) boxes for each, separating them wasn't an issue.

My Benji 397 has its own box too.

I looked, but couldn't find the photos posted here some time ago, which showed storage shelfs neatly arranged by caliber and weight. A couple of the guys I know, use colored sticker dots so they can tell at a glance what's what.

But it is an interesting question, and hopefully some one else with chime in.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Geeze! And here I thought I had a lot of pellets on hand!

I move my pellets onto a metal book case. The old wooden one started to bow under the weight of 60 pounds of pellets.

Side light: The JSB Exact, .25 caliber, 25.39 grains, had doubled in cost in the last 5 or so years. Perhaps I should buy another 60 tins.

Holey Moley; how many guns does he have?  That's got to be a few thousand dollars worth.

About 5 years ago, if someone would have ask me if I would spend $3,000 for an airgun, I would have sent them to the nut house. Well...

Before I started this thread I went this route: Started with my tool box gun maintenance station which has drawers = L18" x W19" x D2.75"

then I put this spice shelf insert in the drawers = https://smile.amazon.com/Lynk-Professional-430414DS-Organizer-Metallic/dp/B07PGQNFFW/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=spice+rack+drawer&qid=1566386832&s=gateway&sr=8-6

one drawer for each caliber I use with four sorting trays on each insert.
however good this storage is for the "shop" it doesn't pick up and go to the range neatly.

I tape a label on the stock of the rifle, the best shootin pellet, gets the label on the gun it goes with. I have box's of tins all over the place , kinda like a hoarder. I have Beeman pellets  that only have the caliber on the tin, in the old days no one cared what the weight was.  No body put the gr wt of pellets on the tin, in the old days you just used the best shootin and hoped the next tin was the same. I have tins that I had when I was 7 years old,60 odd years ago.
