When you have several different calibers of guns and the same gun can use multiple weights of pellets and may also be pellet picky how do you folks store your pellets - ? pics, ideas etc....

More storage than organization. Each shelf holds a specific caliber.

Of course, the wife asks "how many pellets do you need"?

HA!  Fooled her into believing you NEED pellets!

 

Mine are all in a drawer,  in a quadrant config.

Cheap 177 up front, expensive 117 in the rear, same with 22 on the other side.

Back of the drawer is a similar strategy to top shelf items.

 

Shaken/dented pellets stay somewhere else for plinking.

There you have it, the world according to John.

@danwesson

I do believe I saw this configuration (picture) in my dreams - pellet envy!

You are to be commended - now one step further - since you can't take that whole cabinet to the range, even if the mrs. would like you to, how do you carry, store, manage multiple pellet tins at the range, if you do at all?

I am fortunate to have a 10-meter range in my basement and for longer range distances I just walk out the basement door to 3-acres of land (outside city limits). When I do travel to a match somewhere, I simply put the tins of pellets alongside the guns in foam-lined / hard pistol or rifle cases.  For the Pelican-style cases, I've plucked out cubes of foam to store pellet tins during transport.

@danwesson

I have been considering a dedicated rifle/pelican case with pluck and pick to accommodate the tins - great minds.

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.

This is basically the same as a Pelican rifle case, only much less expensive:

I have one of these for my air pistol silhouette case. Mine holds two pistols (Daisy 747 and Baikal IZH-46) and room for pellet tins, eye blinder, tools, oil, pens/pencils, batteries, etc.
