Pellet Pin Information

SIZES

The Pellet Pins that we sell are in three different sizes.

 

Firstly, the original. The L41 (or Standard). Now replaced by the Ultra 47.

Was a solid product that will still last for years and years of use. Very fast cleaning due to the number of pins per pound. Its only short coming is that due to the pins diameter, pins sometimes get stuck side by side in standard small rifle and small pistol flash holes (.082). No trouble in flash holes of other sizes.

Dimensions:

        0.041" x 0.255" (nominal)

Material:

        302/304 Stainless Steel Wire

Other Characteristics:

  • Attracted to a Magnetic, due to it's processing.
 
 

 Next, our latest Product. The Ultra 47

Designed to prevent the possibility of two pins getting stuck side-by-side in flash holes, yet not significantly reducing the number on pins per pound. The Perfect option for standard tumblers less than 20lb capacity. These pins will fit through all boxer type flash holes, one at a time. This quickly became the most Popular pin we sell. We believe it is the best non-commercial pin available which is why we named it the Ultra 47.

Dimensions:

       0.047" x 0.255" (nominal)

Material:

       302/304 Stainless Steel Wire

Other Characteristics:

  • Attracted to a Magnetic, due to it's processing.

Finally, our last Product. The XL 62 

Designed for Commercial Tumbling, the XL 62 will only fit one at a time through flash holes. However it has come to our attention that there are now some manufacturers, that in particular brass, are making the flash hole smaller than 0.062", but is not common. The biggest benefit to the larger pins is that in large scale commercial processing the pins are much more easiliy seperated from the brass, the trade-off being that there are far less pins per pound, slightly increasing tumbling times.

Dimensions:

0.062" x 0.495" (nominal)

Material:

302/304 Stainless Steel Wire

Other Characteristics:

  • Attracted to a Magnetic, due to it's processing.
