    How do you store them for short or longer terms?

    I mean….. the idea is to have one or several available in the field, but what do you do after a hunt or some shooting at the range – do you pick out the pellets, or let them stay there for next time? And if next time is a week or more?

    If it's only a few days, I'll leave them loaded.  If it's going to be a while, I unload them.  Probably doesn't hurt at all to leave them loaded for a few weeks.

    If you have FX mags, this tip might help you to get the pellets out without risking damage to the skirts.

    Thanks Bob O, and what a genius way to empty the Fx mag. So simple!

    Normally I just keep shooting down to, let’s say 3 or 4 pellets, when I normally would have called it a day. And I think a few pellets will not stress the mag spring anyhow.
