First strike rounds now MUCH cheaper!

so, cruising the web and I find that they are selling 40ct boxes for $20 these days (plus shipping of $5, $2.50 additional)
Thats $0.62 per on the first box, and $0.57 per if you buy more.

also found 100ct boxes for $40 (plus shipping of $5, $2.50 additional)
thats $0.45 per on the first box, $0.43 per in you get multiple.

This isn't 'special' pricing, this is the NEW pricing!

YAY!

so question on this:

How are they packaged inside the case? Did they just throw them in a bag and box them up like regular paint? Or are they still in individual 8rd (or maybe10rd now because of case count?) tubes?

If they are just bagged up, what do we think the chances are of dimpling and such?

no chance of dimpling, but if they are just dumped in a box fins could get busted. I'm guessing 10 or even 20 rd tubes.

Info update:

Talked to Eric at TibArms about the new FS bulk packs. The rounds are packaged inside a "bubble bag" (read: padded packing bag) and the inside of the box is bubble lined. The rounds are no longer being packaged in tubes.

I kinda figured that part of how they were bringing down cost was using different packaging. As long as the rounds aren't damaged in transit or warped from storage this is a fine move by me. The tubes that they were using to package rounds were handy but i don't see any problem with just using regular 10 rd stock tubes if i need to.

P.S. if anybody has any empty FS tubes they don't mind throwing my way for free or cheap, let me know. I would like to use them for a project.

Hey I am seriously thinking about buying a t9 but the cost for paint is through the roof. If they are selling 40ct boxes for twenty bucks I will have to get one which brings me to another question. After I buy the t9 do i have to buy anything else to use first strike rounds. thanks

if it's a T9, you need a first strike kit. If it's a 9.1, the kit is pre installed

Thanks a lot. The Tiberius website is terrible for info. Also I have a few more questions. How do you get parts for these guns? Is there any upgrades for these things? Do the First strike rounds fit in the pistol ten round tubes? And where is the best place to order first strike rounds?
Thanks a lot guys the tiberius guns are still a bit foreign to me.

I keep my FS rounds in 10 rd tubes. because of they way they nest, I get 13 rds in a 10rd tube.

By 'parts' do you mean aftermarket parts, or repair parts? You can buy o-rings kits that cover all the parts that 'wear', and there are some aftermarket companies that sell things like barrels and triggers. I own 2 T9's, and aside from some external bolt on parts, they are stock.

Links above are currently best price for FS rounds
