I put a micrometer on a few Piledrivers and got .233-.224â€. I compared that with other pellets that chamber fine. Those are often .223â€ also. The difference is that is the *skirt* diameter on a diabolo shape. The heads are .220 or a touch less. The thin skirts deform to the rifle lands easily, and fill the grooves for a good gas seal. The Piledriver is a slug with low rings moulded around either end, Iâ€™m guessing to create a gas seal and grab the lands like the diabolo skirt. It also has longitudinal ridges between the rings. Iâ€™m not sure what those are for.
I think Iâ€™ll chamber one more of these in the Aspen, then either push it back out with a cleaning rod or shoot it into a trash can full of water. Or both. Then I can get a better idea of whatâ€™s happening with those things. Iâ€™ll update here when I do.
This slug might work well on a Huben K1 which uses a slightly oversized slug anyway.
