I'll be the first to admit I "chumped" at the chance.  The dice have been rolled, 4 tins ordered, we'll see what condition they arrive in.

I’ve bought H&N pellets from one of the “big” sellers and they came shrink wrapped in lots of 4 tins. If yours are the same, there should be less chance of damage.

I guess I've just been lucky but the pellets I've ordered from Amazon were packaged ok.

Received my four tins from gorillazon today.  Loosely packed in double walled paper bag and beat to *(&^.  Opened each tin, a few damaged skirts in each but most appear to have survived.
As damaged and out of shape the tins are, I'm actually quite surprised the paper bag they were shipped in didn't tear open.

I hate myself for giving any money to bozos so this definitely helps in that regard, no more pellets from them.

We need a "Like" button on this forum for post like these. I avoid buying anything from Amazon for so many reasons. This is the smallest reason, but still valid.

pellets arrived today, packed in a padded envelope with another item(shirt) but no other padding at all so they were slammed around all during shipping.. if you can believe this theres not a blemish on any of the tins, not even a slight dimple how I dont know but they made it in perfect condition.
