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.

Just checked BFTA Main Shoot Rules 3.c and it doesn't stop you using sized pellet's for the chrono, MSR 3.c refer's to deformed pellets (ie: from being squeezed), sized pellets are not deformed by any stretch of the imagination.
