    It's understood that there is a Supply Chain issue causing delays in delivery. I'm just wondering where I stand in the mix.

    Ordered 13 tins of JSB's on 10/12 and would like to hear from other members regarding their delivery experience, or rather lack there of.

    My order was placed with Airgun Depot. There have been  several long holding times on the phone for Customer Service to pick up and answer.

    My question is:

    If you have a similar type delivery delay circumstance, please reply with your order date, quantity, and include your supplier's name if you want.

    From your replies, I can gauge where I stand in the "hurry up and wait line" .

     Thanks,

    N2_22

    theres really no good reason to be obsessed with a single item and get in a position to wait, but if its by choice i redirect my current activities to use what is available so i dont have an anxiety attack lol ..

    I have rezeroed my rifles more time this year than the last 10 combined. I just shoot what I have.

    I have been plinking with Gamo.

    I guess I'm lucky in that my Fortitude shoots CPUM 10.5 pellets adequate enough for my pesting needs.  (smile)

    MOA or less out to at least 40 yards if I do my part.

    p.s.

    Actually, the tinned version of this, LUM77, is working better for me now than the boxed version and is cheaper!

    This is exactly why I love .22 guns so much.

    Go to a Walmart and grab a few tins of CPHP and I'm good to go, even in a delay or shortage. I can shoot rats, leaves, squirrels up to 70 yrds and maybe try to solve the eternal mystery of random CPHP flyers.

    Also I found out that my smaller order always get to my door faster, like 1-5 tins. Larger order like yours sometimes get put back in line to get things flowing smoothly. I got asked once if I'm willing to wait longer for my 10,000 rounds order or buy whatever they have left right away.

    So far H&N Baracuda 18 has been plentiful. I just ordered (and they shipped) tins of these 18s and my Avenger seems to do well with them. I don't obsess with where my next tin is coming from. While I understand the fear of missing out, I just think it all boils down to patience.

    I have noticed that the .22 domes 14.3 HP are available at my local WM, but neither the CPUM .177 boxed or LUM77 tinned 10.5 .177 are available from WM locally.  And online only the LUM77 from WM, but believe it or not, their pricing is higher than Pyramydair with the buy 3 get one free.  The only 10.5 .177 pellets they offer locally are the Piranhas which I have not had much luck with for accuracy, but I now have quite a few of them… (sigh)

    Never had much luck with the .177 Crosman 7.9 HP for accuracy at any fps.

    As I said before, lately I have had better accuracy from the tinned (LUM77) than the older stock of boxed CPUM that I have.  The older stock has LOTS of defects, especially lead artifacts in and around the skirts and deformities of the heads and skirts.  These are about 3 years old and die M.

    I have to order them online (LUM77 tinned or CPUM boxed).  But they are still cheaper than just about anything else I could buy and, so far, they work well for my needs.  However, if and when they are available I would like to try some of the 10.34 varieties from other brands.  Problem is they are always OOS and more expensive.   If I was shooting longer ranges I might be more concerned.(grin)

      On 11/17 I noticed ZAN Projectiles, in Slovenia, was now selling JSBs.  Hit on yellow ZAN flag scrolling at forum page top to visit site.  Placed order for 5 tins, 350 count, of Exact King (.25) in 25.39grain at $13.64 a tin and 4 tins, 150 count (.30) JSB Exact 44.75 grain at $11.29 a tin.  Paid $36.88 in shipping, DHL Express, to Tampa.  On 11/22, the package arrived, more securely wrapped then I'd ever seen.  Placed another order of 5 more tins of each, on 11/22, they arrived today.  Grand total for both orders, shipping included, was $314.43 for 4,850 pellets, that's .064 cents a pellet.  On 11/17, I had no ammo for my 3 PCPs, on 11/24, I'm drowning JSBs, no pellet shortage here.

    I would not preprder something like ammo, actually i would not like to preorder anything.

    So ! I have bookmarked about a handful of relevant stores near me ( EU ) that i visit daily to see if they have anything worth buying, even do this now where i have no immediate need of ammo.

    But i did just get another 4 boxes of NSA slugs in when i saw those was back in stock, even if i have not used the first 4 boxes i got months ago, and i am looking to pick up more JSB KO slugs in .177 too

    I could also have ordered 3 – 4 X as many, but that i feel would be selfish, 4 tins / boxes at a time i feel are okay.

    I very seldom wait for pellets.  I just go immediately to where people say they are available and buy 4 or so tins each time. I have a decent enough stash, at the moment, to last me several months for whatever gun and caliber I am shooting.

    Got to agree on larger orders they may have half your order sitting there waiting to get the rest. But also yes you have to have several pellets that your gun will like.

    I like your style plingpling,  get a little all along weather you need it right now or not. You will need it at some point and by getting small amounts your not cramping things for others. When or if things do slow or stop we will have our extra to get us over the hump.

    Airgun depot, pyramid air. Same boat…taking tons of preorders and act clueless when fielding inquiries about orders that have been backordered for months.

      They say pictures speak louder than words, so this is what I've received in November from two Zan Projectiles orders.  Price paid, $314.43, for 19 tins (4850 pellets.)

    As I stated I did an inventory of my pellets and with my Krale order I did when I was in the Netherlands I am up to 40 tins, 15 of that is 25 cal, or so.  Plus I have about 12 of 22 and then down from there.

    I ordered four tins of 25 caliber from pyramid air at the beginning of November and I am still waiting. I ordered 200 fx hybrid slugs from pellet shop.com and got them within a week, and sent a snack with the order lol.
