    Pelletgage is a precise tool to measure the head diameter of pellets, using a metal gage plate with ten apertures covering  a 0.09 mm range of diameters, each 0.01 mm (0.0004 in) different. Using a “go/no-go” check method, the pellets can be accurately separated into +/- 0.005 mm ranges. Pelletgage apertures are accurate to within 0.0025 mm (0.0001 in) of the nominal size engraved on the gage plate. They are cut using a fiber optic laser into special fine grain stainless steel sheets. Pelletgage is offered in five pellet calibers, .177, .20, .22, .25, and .30, as well as a BB size. Competitive shooters and hunters who want to assure clean shots have reported immediate positive effect by determining the best size for a given barrel, checking new lots of pellets, and even sorting pellets for matches and hunts.

    Nice product. I have the .177 and .22 and use them a lot.

    I’ve been wanting to try one of those out.  Just ordered a .22 version.  If it works as good as The Godfather says I’ll be getting one for each caliber of gun I shoot.

    I have one in .25. Definitely helped my Marauder past 50 yards.

    Nice. Ive used a similar technique on the more inconsistent pellet brands. *eun jin for one… Works well, does make a difference.

    Pelletgage is my retirement project, and the feedback has been very positive. Hope you enjoy it.

    Good shooting!

    Thank you Jerry. I use my pellet gauge in .117 when I’m feeling a bit masochistic. :D

    I also have the .177 and  .22 and love them, looking to get the bb one next.
    Any other retirement projects in the works Jerry???

I have a prototype for what I will call Pelletgager. It has two gage plates, aligned vertically. Each plate has 48 identical apertures, so that it can sort pellets very quickly. If ithas, say, 4.51 and 4.53 gage plates, then it can sort pellets into the range of >4.51 and < 4.53. It looks like this

    What do you think?

    IMO – Anything that can speed up, or make the process easier while maintaining precision will be a hit with the pellet sorting folks.

    Nifty!  Kinda looks like a hybrid between the Pelletgauge and the Speedy Pellet Inspector. I assume it operates simliar to the Inspector where you dump a few pellets on the plate and let them fall into the holes???

    It looks like you have it configured similar to my pelletgauges with the clear platic plate under the gauge plate and not on top.  I find that helps in both stiffening the plate for more consistent gauging and allows me to more easily see and interact with the plate when passing pellets through, especially with wadcutters since I can lay them face down on the plate which ensures they are squarely aligned and I just slide them over the hole.

Yes, kinda. there is a plasic spacer, thickness about half the head diameter, separating two gage plates aligned with apertures say 0.02 mm difference.. Drop a pellet in each hole, it can do three things. stop in the upper plate aperture, stop in the lower aperture, or drop to catch with the skirt. The desired pellets would be the middle position. Much faster than regular Pelletgage for sorting.

    Presumably then you must be planing on providing several different range plates for a given caliber…..

Yes, that’s right, I have four incremental .01 mm steps for the .177 and .22, so if you want to sort to +/- 0.01 to 4.53mm, say – you’d need the 4.54 upper and the 4.52 lower gage plates on either side of the spacer. Drop in 48 pellets, shake and get each aperture to drop one pellet. Visually pick out the pellets stopped by the upper plate, and push up those clearing the lower plate with a finger to pick them out, the remaining pellets are above 4.52, and below 4.54. Some tins yield quite well, and others don’t.

I’ll take one each in 4.51, 4.52, and 4.53 when they are ready. Will there be a 3 pack discount?

    Thanks for your interest, 
John! I am reviving my Pelletgager project. The prototypes were ordered in only .177, and the gage plate sizes I have are 4.51, 4.52, 4.53, 4.54 and 4.55. If you wanted to sort out 4.52mm my concept is to use a 4.53 upper and a 4.51 lower. Your pellets would be >4.51 and <4.53. 

    I am in need of some plastic parts, and may arrange for a “beta test” with some Airgun Nation folks. I will get back to you in a week or so.

    cheers,
    Jerry
