Is there such a thing as a pellet sizer that makes head sizes larger?

Pellet Sizer

January 22 2012, 11:07 AM 

I use the "Lone Wolf Airgun Accessories Pellet Tool" to shape all my pellet's tails. Most pellets are fine, but for those ones that are out of shape, this tool is the ticket.

No to your question

You can size pellest but most do it so pellets are all the same! but you can't make them bigger! Also there used to be allot of talk on sizing, most will tell you it really doesn't do much!

There is.

With the right diameter drill bit shank to prevent the arbor press from going too far down and ruining the pellet, I stand the pellet up and smash it about 1 or 1.5thou. This spreads the skirt for a tighter and consistent fit in the breech.

By smashing Exacts down from 29thou tall to 27.5thou tall, I have spread their skirts enough to get a 10% increase in fps. A 10% speed increase gives you a 21% increase in fpe, regardless of speed.

Of course, speed is not important. Accuracy is.

This made JSB 18.1 shoot good

in my Mrod. This Chicago rivet toll with home made dies only expands the heads without changing the skirts.

perfect, thanks Jim!

Your example is exactly what I am after. I have a particular gun that is very accurate with one type of pellet, and that one type of pellet has inconsistent head sizes. I will try and make one of your example. Photos much appreciated!

Jim - have you tried sized pellets in other air guns?

If so, how did it work out? That was an incredible improvement in your one gun.

The only other gun that I shoot is a Prod

This gun shoots H&Ns good and have some good results with some other pellets but the JSB 18.1 and 15.9 give me the best results when resized. It takes a lot adjusting to get the dies just right. This is not a perfect way to getting a perfect pellet. It just makes me able to shoot pellets that I may have had to throw out.
