Ref: http://www.airrifletuning.com/product-c ... et-sizers/

Here's some feedback > http://www.airgunnation.com/topic/air-gun-pellet-sizer/

Would be good if someone on this side in UK/Europe has an opinion... personally have never come across feedback as if, it is a 100% MUST in FT comps. ; some a) wash, some b) lube, some c) do both , and then some also d) re-size, and finally, some just pick out of tin and still are pretty good crack competitors...

The exception actually are from Bench rest shooters who actually do go through all the motions (the hard core ones) to ensure 100% exact pellet weight AND head diameter before loading...besides the pellet is then resized and even more so when a barrel has a single or double choke , or no choke when propelled depending on barrel brand...

Might be ok for few tins, brass wears and is rather ductile.
Used to use a much harder stainless steel G316 one, that showed signes of wear after 4 sleeves.

Sure that lip is advantageous, hasnt even got a lead in.

Have tried some other so called sizers over the years ie order 4.5 which i can only presume is the drill size or reamer theyve put through, pellets will come out rather different!
Buy from a place that sizes the end product so that a pellet comes out to desired size. A good 85% of pellets dont measure whats stated on the lid theyre often 4.47/4.48 regardless if printed with 4.53 on, therefefore will only size the skirts often in excess of 4.66mm.
If a jobs worth doing, do it right or not at all.
