I've ordered from the 3 main suppliers. I got 10lbs in from blingslinger last week and it's as good as anyone's. 18.2 density and extremely clean.

Well, we will see. I decided to order enough to see if it's worth the trouble of buying direct. I want to wait until it delivers and I am certain of my final landed cost. I really don't want to get in the business of selling TSS, but I will say that 38/lb is probably about as cheap as you could afford to sell it shipped and clear any kind of profit. I'd want to be a little higher if I were messing with it.

I can just about guess what you have in it as I looked into it myself, but didn't bite the bullet yet. I don't want to sell for profit, I just want to order enough in one lick to last me the rest of my life

I'm glad to see the 'price war'' helping bring prices down! Makes ya wonder just how much money some folks have made off being the 'middle man' the past few years...

Well, to be fair, the price of tungsten has only dropped in the last few years. A few years back raw Tungsten was at $55/kg and now it's closer to 25/kg. I don't doubt that those guys made some money, but it was a pretty good risk they were assuming when the purchased in bulk from China.

Guys the price is coming down. I'm just trying to help folks out, and let folks understand that at almost $50/lb, someone is trying to pad their pocket. I'm not making a lot on it at all, I'm just trying to help people get a great product at a reasonable price.

Yeah, pretty sure that's all it is about. It's the same shot, same quality, just cheaper.

Not to mention shining a little light on the amount of profit these guys were making off their "buddies". LOL
Warning: some guys on here are loyal to a couple of the bears on GN....

Exactly! I know there are some here that are loyal, but I'm OK with that.

Here I will post this. Both weights are 20 pellets and 19 measures a large .01 bigger than 18.
18g/cc 20 pellets weight

19g/cc 20 pellets weight

And now 18 beside the 19. Can you tell which is what?

With that does that make 19 worth 8-10$ more per pound?

I'll have to get birdsnspurs to post up what he posted over there. Regardless of what they say, we are 2 different people.

And 1 more thing the bear advertises 18.5 density in GN classified but he talks 19 density in open forum. Does he even know how to check it? Last I got from him was 18.5 with a 19 advertisement and price!
