I sent the following off to Brownell's:

"Department: Technical Support (GunTech)
Order ID:
SKU: 080-943-213WB (.213\") or 080-943-022WB (.215\")
Message:
I need one of the pilots above, but do not know which one to
order. It will be used on a Remington 552 and a Remington
550. Can you help me out?"

.....and got the following answer:

"I would start with the .213", if it is too loose than go up to the .215"."

Since this is going to be used only twice, I sure as heck do not
need a spare that will never be used lying around!

Does anyone here know Remington's land-land specs for their .22RF's?

Drive a slug through the bore, mike it, and buy the right pilot.......once.

You will need a blade micrometer, 'cause you're gonna mic the grooves in the bullet to determine bore diameter and thus pilot size.

No need for a blade mic. Just cut away the lead( with a knife) on the sides of the groove so that a standard mic anvil will contact the groove bottom. Do this on opposite sides of the slug and measure it.

Forgot to add that if you have, or have access to, a pin gauge set... that would work as well.

Reamer pilots come in .0002" increments. Not 2 thousands, two ten thousands. There are a couple places that rent these. Akjeff is right if you have access to deltronic pins, they can get the right fit. You want a snug fit, not too tight to where you scar the lands, but too loose and it can chatter and not be as accurate.
