    Ok, organizational question. How or what methods have you taken to manage inventory of your pellets? Currently, I have all my pellets in a gun cabinet bottom drawer, and I pulled all the tins out and made a list of what I had, separating them by caliber, brand, and weight. The problem with this method, is if I don’t stay on top of crossing off a tin of say, the Vortex 44.75 grain supremes off the list when I grab a new tin, in time I’ll run low unknowingly. So, it makes sense to me to have the tins at eye level, mounted up to a wall, where I can easily see if I’m getting low on a certain caliber, brand, or grain weight. 

    Im looking for ideas, especially from folks sporting all sorts of air guns, in all different calibers. The one thing I told myself I’d never do is have an abundance of half empty tins, or unused tins that won’t work on any of my guns. To me, that’s just money sitting there, collecting dust.

     

    Thanks, all.

    With only one rifle its easy for me. FT/general use pellets stacked on one side of shelf and hunting pellets on the other side.

    Thanks for the input. I figured a lot of you guys were stacking. My problem is I store all my pcp related stuff inside my 5’ x 9’ “gun room”. It’s actually mainly my reloading room, but since I don’t own a gun safe but instead a old school gun cabinet, I built shelves around that cabinet to house all the pertinent reload tools. I’m out of wall space, almost. 

    BDZJLZ- that is a cool a$$ set up, man. You, sir, have a lot of pellet tins. None of that framework bows at all due to the weight? I definitely don’t have the room for a cool set up like that. That doubles up as a cool display. You ought to throw in a couple tins of Copenhagen cans for that added touch, lol.

    Im pondering an idea of schedule 40 pvc, with either a cut out so I can actually see the amount of tins stacked, and just pull out a tin from the bottom and the stock drops, like a dispensary, or even come up with a thick clear square or round cylinder, where I empty all the pellets into, and at the bottom a hatch to open and fill a tin up as I need. I’m almost guessing, though, as I fill the container on top the chances of crushing pellets are there. Either way, these ideas won’t take up so much room and wall space.

    Ask your favorite gas station if they have any old chew displays ….

    I re-purposed a too bag (from my woodworking) and keep pellets stacked by grain, style, and/or frequency of use.

    Mixing pellets,even if it's from the same lot# or Batch# is not a good idea. I have labels I put on my tins.Marked as Tin #1/ Tin #2/ Tin #3. If a certain tin shoots really well in 1 of the rifles I label it for that rifle. I don't keep enuff pellets to have a problem with storage.

    I have not pretty up the angle rack but this is what I did. Each shelf for the most part has a different calibers with brands organised together or what you want to do. The main thing is the angle of the display shelf lets you see what is in the stack behind and what is on the display shelf is the tin I am working out of at the present time. Bill

    Thanks.  No plans.  Used a sheet of 3/4” plywood, laid out the tins on it for dimensions. Cut 1” poplar strips to space our for the tins, screwed and glued them to the plywood.  Then used 1/4” x 2” trim to overlay the strips and form the troughs – using trim screws and glue to hold them in place.  Used a generous number of stainless steel 3/8” x 3 1/2” tap cons inserted into the vault walls to secure it.  Painted it.

    Good luck!

    I have an old 5 drawer dresser that I keep my gun stuff in. Parts and accessories, tools and manuals. My pellets take up 2 drawers. The middle drawer holds pellets stacked by brand and lot. They're used for practice and match shooting. The bottom drawer are mostly tins of many brands and weights for testing in new guns/barrel's.

    The inventory part. I shoot 20 or so tins a year and buy as much or a bit more. When I think the bottom of the drawer is going to fall out I stop buying for a while.

    Not nearly as good as most of you are. I have two small drawers that I am keeping them in. I have reached the point now that between the different air rifles I have there are far too many different pellets and I'm gonna have to do something different. It's starting to get out of hand.

    I keep them in a drawer and then load a few small pill boxes with the types of pellets I need. So if I’m going hunting, I can grab hunting assortment, toss it in my bag and be off.

    Saw a guy make his own tin–pellet-container-dispenser  using a PVC pipe.

    – he a cut a slit from top to bottom, so he could see how many tins were left in the tube. Each tube would hold maybe 20 tin

    – He had one pipe per type of pellets
