So having received over 500,000 QYS pellets in screw top lids over the last 2 days I can confirm, regardless of some comments / beliefs that they are exactly the same pellets in every way. They are now just packaged in the screw lid tin as opposed to the plastic tub. Will these pellets shoot any better or worse? No. Will they be more expensive? No. Will they possibly avoid spillage due to screw top lid? Yes. Is the tin smaller / shallower than the plastic tub? Yes a bit.
Are the tins shinier? Oh Yes!
They will still need the same protection in transit.
