No idea on size of specific sinkers, but you can "embiggen" one by putting it on a hard surface (such as the 'table' on the back of the usual bench vise) and giving it a few whacks with a hammer. Might save a trip to the store to buy something else.

Good luck.

Or just squeeze them in the vise to make them bigger. At least that's what I did.
