I have the same thing. I own a 125 for argon, another for 75/25 and I lease a 300 for argon. My 125 fills are about the same as you pay. I can fill my 300 for $65+ tax....big bottles are a way better deal, especially when my LWS is 30 miles away.

Outstanding info from all. I love the pricing comparisons and lease vs purchase discussion.

It seems the overarching theme is that the area, LWS and level of gas usage dictate the selection. I will just have to make some time in the schedule to head to the LWS and discuss my options and start the relationship building process.

Thanks again to all.

DevilDog, I know that username from another forum, but can't recall which. Perhaps on a FB forum? Or from long ago at Industrial Projects Report?

I suppose, also, others may well have used that as a username all across the internet.

Just curious.

Most of my activity has been on ArcheryTalk and a couple of ford truck and diesel forums. I haven't been on them regularly in a while.
