Square peg in a round hole...new axles WTH?

Received my new axles today from Alloy USA, and have spline studs (as usual) that I am expected to press into round holes on the axle flange. Every axle I have ever seen has the splined holes. Am I missing something here? Spline dia. .625, hole dia. is .600. Any thoughts here before I make a fool out of myself? Thanks

Thats funny, Iv'e never seen a splined hole on a new axle.
OEM, Moser, Yukon, Strange ect.
The hole becomes splined when the stud is pressed in.
On some aftermarket studs (ARP) you may have to open the hole a tad. Check manufacturers specs.

I pull them in with an impact wrench before I install the axle.
