The diameter listed is the size of the hole drilled. However, it is somewhat nominal due to the fact that the diamond grit is plated on the bit. Sometimes the layer is slightly thicker, as it wears, the size gets slightly smaller. Drilling technique can also be a factor, since you are really grinding, not drilling. Final hole size could vary perhaps + or – 1-1.5 mm overall with all the factors considered.

Bought these to drill rocks for jewelry.
So far, so good.
Can’t speak to longevity yet but we have drilled half dozen with each of the 5 and 6 mm seamlessly.
Nice little set of drills.
