I bought 5 cans of 500ct ( RWS Diabolo Basic .177 Cal, 7.0 Grains, Wadcutter) on amazon fulfilled by Air Depot. My package arrived this evening and I got 5 X 300ct cans. something is wrong there is nowhere on the order is says 300ct. This is a hugh difference thats 1000 pellets short I wonder if Air Depot knowingly sent the 300ct instead of the 500ct and hoped i didnt notice . we will see since i sent them an email. I will update their reply

It's probably a mistake that they didn't update their ad, or warn you. The importer has decided to sell only 300 count tins of both RWS Basic and Hobby pellets, and the dealers are stuck in the middle. In addition to losing 40% of the pellets, they are still packing them loose in the same tins. With all that extra room to bounce around, it means they are much more susceptible to damage if they are banged around in shipping.

All known sources of 500 count tins have been drying up for the last month or two. There have been several threads discussing this.

Nobody but the importer's accountants are happy about the change. In theory, they are charging less per tin, but the per pellet cost has gone up.

Thanks that make since to me now. Unfortunately Air Depot is adding lets say fuel to the fire if they dont update their information because an average customer dont really know or care as they just want what they paid for 500ct can.

Interesting how Air Depot will handle my transaction, since i am still out 1000 pellets based on their ad

Return them..... Use the Amazon code Not as Advertised...... This gets a complaint loaded to the vendor requiring them to fix things......

AD will either send you more tins to bring up to the original order count or refund to the current 300 count price.
I chose more tins to bring me to my original count order.

I wonder if the importer kept the same SKU number, causing the confusion.
Because the 500 count tins should have been "out of stock."
