    I am referring to lead BB size shot, as in what's used in loading shotshells. I noticed that one online source lists it as being about .18" (4.57mm IIRC). Anybody have the actual? :)

    Steel BB shot is sized .177 +/- a bit. BB sized lead shot is sized .180. I remember a leas shot size listed as "air rifle" listed many years back, and I believe that was sized at .178.
