    Hey just wanted to put this out there.  For the .25 kings or heavies you can fit a whole tin of 350/300 in the H&N 200ct tins.  I’m not 100% sure about the heavies but pretty sure and I know you can with the kings.  Way better tins,  screw top and stay shut in a backpack or whatever.

    And I’ve been checking skirts to make sure no damage,  just put 7/8ths of a tin in and close it.  Turn it upside down and roll it around then you’ll have the room to fit the rest.

    Hi Glem. The H&N tins are much better for transporting no doubt that’s a good tip. Can I add to it. 
    Nothing worse than hearing pellets rattle when carrying them in the field hunting. 
    If you take the foam from a large jsb tin and put it in a small H&N tin it will go round the sides. 
    Then the original foam fits perfectly on top. 
    Pellets are now surrounded by foam and don’t rattle.

    One word….Tupperware.

    These little guys hold exactly 100 .22 pellets, and even come in 6 different colors.   Best thing I’ve found for my pellets so far.   Of course they do make bigger ones, but these are perfect for carrying in a pocket, or on a lanyard around your neck. You can even drill a hole in the lid so you can shake them out one at a time.

    Yeah to be honest the best option is the tupperware no doubt.  I just like fitting a whole tin of 350 in a smaller tin for lubing purposes,  I keep that foam soaked in ballistol and just roll it around now and then.  But no reason anything else wouldn’t work as good or better.  Thanks for the tips guys.

    I use the ‘flat metal tin, 2oz’ from Amazon… 15 ea for +-$16.00.  They have a cardboard ‘gasket’ disk in the lid.

    I buy pellets 5000 at a time and after a rinse in solvent to clean the lead dust off (and then a dip n drain/dry in 2 cycle synthetic oil mixed with more solvent, 30:1)   weigh/sort in the evenings while watching news n movies so takes a couple weeks and then store in these tins, ea marked with caliber n weight to the tenth.  For field use they get a layer of foam on the bottom so between the factory top cardboard and bottom foam not much rattling goes on.

    Yeah those are basically the H&N tins I mentioned in the OP.  Thanks for the heads up,  cheaper than buying all the H&N pellets haha.

    If you want heaver duty these are steel, 4 oz so larger and I have had good luck with them too. Some sellers have good quality and some do not, I have bought both of these and they were OK.  The 2oz for field use and the 4 oz for shelf/bulk storage

    What a great tip !!!
    I made a couple of them after seeing this with some scrap foam laying around and I have several empty tins of different size variety from all the different pellets tried. 
    Appreciate it !!
