Looks like the perfect carrying case for around 3000 pellets or so!  I don't have a need to transport that many pellets at one time, personally.

I guess if you needed to transport two or three different pellet weights, in a couple of different calibers, at one time though, that would come in really handy.  Nice that the tins fit like a glove!

Hi all - My first post here, but I'm a regular on GTA (FWIW). Took me a while to find this topic (and tin storage idea) because I couldn't remember where I saw it.

 

Anyway - I can't tell by the picture. Are those 500 count tins?

Yup it will hold the 500 count .22 tins and the 350 count .25 cal. both same size.

Good luck!

Thanks Fuss.

All my pellets are either 500 ct. .177 or 250ct. .22's. I'm thinking my tins are smaller than what you describe. I saw some Plano spool boxes at Walmart and it looks like the spools they hold are larger than my tins. I did not check the model number of the Plano boxes however as I did not know which one you had until I found your topic this evening.

My .177 500 ct. tins measure 2-5/8" (67mm) in diameter.

Great idea by the way!

Stinger, all the credit goes to Pluric. He saw them at EBR and I just happened to find them via his post here. The one I have will hold the larger 3-5/8" tins as well as your 2-5/8" tins.

A couple of weeks ago I found this leather case at the Goodwill.

I did an internet search.

From Denmark used to carry watches when traveling.

Retail price for the case $250.00.

I paid $.99.

Fuss - Thanks for that pic. Tells me what I need to know.

Frank - I saw that holder in one of your other posts about it. Man, that is one great deal. Very cool item. Wish I had the time to browse around Goodwills and pawn shops. I bet there are some very good finds out there.

Frank, that is an awesome find!

Dennis, glad I could help bud.

Can't remember where I saw it but a fellow airgunner was using these old vintage Kiwi shoe polish towers to store pellets at home. Wish I could find the original picture of his loaded with pellet tins, but these would be cool if you can find one for a decent price on Ebay.

The pellet tins seemed to be a perfect match for the shoe polish tin size.

That is......a LOT of pellets!

I could actually make something like that I think, but I only have maybe 8 tins of different pellets right now. Obviously, I don't shoot much (but I do a LOT of tinkering with my guns). Would rather have them closer at hand anyway, but that is a cool idea as well. Interesting how one item is perfectly sized for an entirely different purpose.

Dennis, they have a few on Ebay right now.

Go to Ebay and search "vintage shoe polish display" .  They think a lot of some of those? LOL

That's crazy! But then that's what they say about us airgunners, haha.

 

I think I'll pass. I can always make something similar to this golf ball display that I made.

 

I should have reduced the image size sorry. Thing is dusty as heck.

Oh yeah, you've got skills Dennis. Your wood case will look much better!

Never been much into golf. Airguns is one expensive hobby too much!

Thanks. I made that back in the early '90's when I had my custom cabinet shop. Was kinda into golf back then. Never really got into it, not like these AG's!! Thought I might be able to sell these things, but would have to charge around $250 (in those days dollars) to barely make anything on them. I still have a box of parts to make about four more of them.

 

Tell me about AG's being expensive. I'm an addict. I have about 34 guns now. Was thinking just today....buy a gun..buy a new scope for it....buy another gun.....scope for that.....new/better trigger for the first one..........buy a double rifle case for them, then do all of that about 12 more times, and that doesn't include the pistols.

I love the shoe polish case.  Will it hold both small and large tins?

I will have to watch for them once my funds are replenished.

David, I'm not sure what size it holds as I've never had one. Just saw it posted on another forum somewhere? I'm thinking the smaller tins though?

Dick, I see you have one you lucky dog!  That is 1.5 cases of the small pellet tins right?  I believe it's 9 tins to a sleeve, so how many sleeves to a case? Darn you're tempting me to buy one now! LOL

Thanks Dick.

It's been a while since I bought a sleeve of pellets, but the last 2 sleeves I bought.....I believe it was only 9 tins in each sleeve? Is that because it was the heavy .177 JSB 13.43 grain Exact Monsters? Normal weight pellets (8.4gr & 10.3gr) usually come 10 tins to a sleeve right?
