Just occurred to me to ask.

So, if you size a 4.52 down to say 4.48 the fps drops i.e. the ft.lbs. drops. If the power is then near the limit (hot day rather than deliberate e.g. BFTA chrono checks) it might very well be over the limit at the original size? I would assume that for chrono testing you would have to use un-sized pellets? (taken the other way - if sized pellets were used to pass the chrono a less ethical competitor might then use unsized ?? ).

BFTA Main Shoot Rules 3.c

Thinking about it a sized pellet is pretty obvious on visual inspection so the Chrono Marshal ought to be able to deal with this.
