    I am trying to find the specification for a 250ml can. Specifically the can used by Red Bull, mostly the diameter.

    I've Googled, and Googled all to no avail. Sites all over the place can tell me there are 200, 224, 250, 300, ????? size cans. Great, but what are the specs?

    The closest I have come is applying the volume of a cylinder formula, guessing the height is the same as a 12oz can. This is inaccurate at best since the cans have irregular shapes and I am not going to study a can to derive a calculus solution.

    Thanks for any help.

    Ah!! Yes!!!

    Never had that thought occurred to me, never. As any one schooled in measuring knows it is an inexact science. My tape measure may not be callibrated for the temperature, etc, etc, etc...

    Thanks though. Good suggesstion.

    Possibly someone knows the solution to this conundrum?

    Try using contacting people at one of the following sites:

    http://www.rexam.com

    http://www.ball.com

    http://www.cancentral.com

    The first two are the major manufacturers of aluminum cans and the third is a canning industry organization.

    Thanks again. I found exactly what I needed at Rexam! Awesome!

    I can't begin to count the time I wasted trying to get through Alcoa's website.

    My project just got about 90% closer to being complete.
