As far as I know 5.51 is as small as they come. And, for what it’s worth, I think my Matador preferred the “small” pellets most in that video because it had a particularly aggressive choke.  Ed alluded that the R2.0 Matadors had this idiosyncrasy, and that is was “corrected” in the R2.5 and later models.  Most of my .22’s do best with 5.51 and 5.52.  I know you know this, but I want to reiterate that the sorting exercise was not to determine the “best” pellet head diameter.  I only wanted to show that finding an optimal pellet size for your (LW) barrel was necessary for achieving maximum accuracy.
