Picked 10 at random to measure with a digital fractional caliper. From the flat bottom to the top of the rounded head, consistently measured 5/16" The top head diameters were almost half and half measuring 1/2" or 31/64" The short tapered portion at its widest point were almost half and half measuring 3/8" or 25/64" Sure hope that clears up the measurements

Of course if they are the same it will not fit. I use a 25/64 drill bit and its a perfect fit. Just a size up from 3/8.
