Well, I'd really need to dye my hair for that these days - My hair is going towards auburn.
I know we've debated this before, and yes, perhaps the pilot volume equivalent of a C-string isn't a good idea
Trust you to lower this to the tone of talking about knickers.
Perhaps in this small chambered case, you have a point about it having a noticeable effect on pumping time - but for a cannon about the size I'd want to work with, the relative size of the pilot volume and chamber size means that a slightly oversize pilot volume will have only a very minor effect on the end results.
