Air Rifle / Pistol Pellet Sizing
Air Rifle and Pistol Pellets are often measured by their diameter (Calibre) in either imperial (1/100th of an inch) or Metric (1/100th of a millimetre), and are manufactured to a tolerance of these measurements. If a Pellet is shown as 5.5mm, that means that the pellet was measured and rounded up to the nearest 1/10th of a millimetre. This is important as some barrels might struggle with a pellet who under tighter scrutiny measures as 5.57mm. If however the pellet shows a measurement of 5.52mm, then the pellet has been measured to 1/100th of a millimetre and allows users to choose different sizes for testing and consistency.
