So does anyone use those things often enough to maybe save me up a few? It's more than worth the cost of a small flat rate box to me, that's about the same thing as a box of bulbs would cost, anyway. I have a few 88g bulbs, but those are entirely too big for what I want to use them for, at least for now, anyway. I'd be willing to trade for a pound or two of that nickel plated lead from the already sorted stash, and that stuff just isn't available anymore. And there is just no substitute for lead where accuracy matters. I have already given my dissertation on the "knuckleball effect" of smoothbores and steel shot. The theory that finally explains why it is impossible to hit anything more than 30 feet away with steel bb's, the knuckleball effect was a revelation, I thought, even if I can barely describe it, much less understand the physics behind it. Just recognizing it at all was actually one of my best moments.

So you see you are actually doing the world a favor. Every case you buy equals about 5000 12g units of captured Co2. If you are really concerned about it they also come in nitrogen. I have a bunch of those I wouldn't mind unloading.
I already know I'm an asshole.
