    Just received an order of 4 tins of pellets today from Pyramyd Air that shipped from Draper, UT and was a little less than excited when I opened the (undamaged) box.

    Maybe someone just got in a hurry and grabbed the brown packing paper by accident? Did they run out of the really, really great foam pellet packaging they always use?

    Is this going to be the new "normal" from them? Or, did they come from someone other than Pyramyd that doesn't use the same care when packaging. Not naming names.

    Luckily, 3 of the tins were not damaged and the 4th one only had a minor dent in the lid. Probably no damage to the pellets……….this time.

    Don't mean to be whiny; just disappointed, that's all. I don't think I've ever received a damaged tin of pellets from Pyramyd before with the black foam packaging..wherever they shipped from.

    Perfectly justified to be unhappy with that.  It isn't what I've experienced from PA EVER but it seems some have noticed this occurring.  Hope it doesn't become the norm.  Trenier also has a very good reputation for pellet cost and shipping.

    They have a lot of orders, pickers, and packers…probably statistical probability. I cut big companies some slack. They employ people and give us our toys. I support AOA nearly exclusively now, and they really pack things well. Still, it happens.

    Also…nothing is damaged right? No damage done then no worries, right? If they are damaged, call them and they will probably fix their mistake

    No foam around those?

    i think its the guys at shipping- i got a 5 pack from Utah and they were all opened up inside the box- they made it right also just crazy as most of them shoot also and damn well know how the shipping companies just throw our stuff around. yes trenier really does a fantastic job he got my pellets every order perfect really good how he does it and gets them shipped same day usually if its early enough

    That is how my last order showed up..no foam rings, no foam at all, several tins dented but luckily no damaged pellets.

    😳… I just recieved and order of pellets (4) last week from pyramid.  Packing was great! Pellets were packed tightly in those black foam cut outs snug in a box. Recieved some Baker that were packed nicely as well..

    Every pellet order I have received from Pyramyd was packed in the foam with cutouts.  My guess is they either ran out, China virus problem, or got a new employee.  Either way it looks like I will hold my pellet orders for bit.

    My reply didn’t post for some reason, yes they were packed in foam, that’s why I said they had to have been picked packed and shipped in this condition, they were awesome made it all good.

    Middle of December I ordered 4 tins of H&N slugs from Pyramyd Air and the shipper person took OUT the 200ct size foam and stuck my 4 tins of 200ct in the 500ct sleeve and proceeded to use the "extra foam"  to fill the space on top before sealing the box! …Brilliant.

    The slugs were a little beat-up.

    Wow, I hope that does not become the norm. I have an order of .30 JSB's that just shipped a few days ago… We will see…

    I wouldn't worry about it, probably they ship like 100's of tins a day and we see that something was packed incorrectly like once a week…month?

    So that's like 1 in 1000 that is packed incorrectly, not bad in my opinion. With all the places I ordered pellets from I never have problems with any of them.

    Never ordered from Pyramyd Air, but AoA has been top notch in every way. Everything they shipped was well packed, pellets or otherwise.

    Last 2 orders of pellets from them came in a Manila envelope with ZERO packing! They ultimately made it right by replacing them (because every single tin, 8 of them, were thrashed almost beyond recognition! ) C'mon P.A., do it right the FIRST time! Not crazy about dealing with A.D. but their pellets have ALWAYS come beautifully packed, whether I'd ordered 2 or 20.

    Last week I got 16 tins of FX 8.44, and they all came in the foam with the tins embedded into it, taped 4 to a block.  Like they always did in the past.  No problems.  Maybe only for smaller orders they are not using the foam inserts?

    Very literally my last pellet order from PA and came packed like you see. 5 tins in each bubble mailer, then both of those shoved in a third and sent out in the US Mail. 6 of 10 tins, while not badly, were dented. They sort of made good by sending me 2 free tins plus $10 in Bullseye bucks.

    Haven't ordered from them since and unless the sale is an insane one, I won't be again.

    I'm wondering if there might be a problem with PA getting the foam inserts.  Environmental concerns?  Supplier?
