Crowning Pilot

I sent the following off to Brownell's:

"Department: Technical Support (GunTech)
Order ID:
SKU: 080-943-213WB (.213\") or 080-943-022WB (.215\")
Message:
I need one of the pilots above, but do not know which one to
order. It will be used on a Remington 552 and a Remington
550. Can you help me out?"

.....and got the following answer:

"I would start with the .213", if it is too loose than go up to the .215"."

Since this is going to be used only twice, I sure as heck do not
need a spare that will never be used lying around!

Does anyone here know Remington's land-land specs for their .22RF's?

If it were me, I'd slug the barrel. Then you'd know for sure what yours is, not what Remington says it should be.

It's likely that despite the official dimension, that actual bore measurements might fall into the range referenced. The nature of tool usage/wear and mass production make the range given very likely. It's not uncommon to need a range, in this case .002", of tools to accommodate the variance in tolerances. The advice to slug the barrel will give you the tightest dimensions.

If you have a machinist buddy or a machinist close by, see if he will check your bore with a pin guage. Shouldn't cost you anything and it will determine exactly what you need.
