is it possible to shrink a size 7 1/4 poly hat to a 7 1/8?

I tried it with last years diamond era ones, and it did not shrink that much.

Don't have much experience with DE's but standard poly can be shrunk about one size with the oven method. I've had some wrinkling issues when doing this with the newer caps however.

I've done it with a DE hat. Washing machine, dryer, then oven trick (300 degrees, 7-10 min), finally tossed it in my car window on a hot day after getting it wet. Once it dried it was nice and snug, like my 7 1/8's.
