CO2, 4, 6, 8

I really enjoy the convenient, accurate, and backyard/garage-friendly plinking I get out of my Diana Chaser pistol. I needed CO2 cartridges recently, and I noticed the price range for 12 gram cartridges seems to be ridiculously wide. I just picked up a box of 40 at Walmart and paid a price that works out to less than fifty cents per cartridge. I see prices online that go up from there to around $1.25 per cartridge. Why the wide price spread?

And while I'm at it, I'll ask a somewhat related question. I normally expect anything to be cheaper in bulk, but the price per gram of CO2 seems to be higher if you're buying the big 88 gram cartridges, than it is if you're buying the little 12 gram cartridges. What's up with that?

Walmart is hard to beat on the 12 gram cartridges JEC. The wide range of pricing seems the same on lots of things. Due diligence saves money!

And I'd assume the market on the 88 gram cartridges is tiny compared to the little guys, supply and demand.

Those Chasers are a hoot 馃

Redrock has them for $ 0.40 ea if you buy a bulk pack of 450. I did that last year and gave my son and grandson over half of them.

If there is an Academy Sorts in your area, check them for CO2 carts. Haven't bought any in a while, but I've found some good prices there in the past. Otherwise, Wally World is my goto for carts.
