Default Chainlink, scallops or ice cream scoop

Late last night, I was working and machining on new front strap treatment. I’m going to called “Ice Cream Scoops” because looks like ice cream scoop. Mostly companies or gunsmiths called them Chainlink or Scallops.

Looks cool.
I would choose this over the standard checkering you normally see.

What is the dimension of the individual cut...if you don't mind telling us.
