Which FAT Wrench bit should I get?

I have the FAT Wrench kit that contains a #10 and #11 bit which is basically the same size other than .005" difference in width and .002" tip thickness. Neither tip fits the small 6-48 plug screws.

What number bit do you use for these smaller screws? Thanks.

We have the Wheeler scope mounting kit which contains a Wheeler "Fat Wrench" and it came with an assortment of bits, including three torx, three straight and a couple allen head bits.
But we also have a 150 piece Titan srewdriver bit set and it has everything needed for almost everything!

According to the old, wrinkled and greasy chart in my tool box, a number 31 drill bit is used for a 6-48 screw hole.

Boy, that blew by me. I thought of Fabbrica d'Army Terni, Fresno Airport, and File Access Table, plus the usual meaning. I'm glad someone cleared it up.

A gunsmith not having a screwdriver that fits a screw slot will grind one till it fits the slot right.

Whats of greater value the screw diver or the gun your working on?

Shhhh! That is a secret. Gunsmiths always have exactly the right screwdriver for the perfect fit. And they are always the very best quality. No gunsmith would buy a Sears cheapie to grind to fit!

And the Easter Bunny will be around any time now.
