I always have the hardware on hand to actually measure, or go to a place I can touch it. You should be able to get the specifications and mounting instructions from the hardware mfr if not the supplier.

I would be careful, too, to use drawer hardware that is heavier than the rating might suggest. I consider a drawer slide rated for 50 lbs a light duty drawer. I’ve never seen epoxy coated hardware rated higher than a light duty. It seems to me that you might need to consider heavier slides than you are suggesting. These pantry goods get really heavy. Even hardware rated at 100 lbs might be light for this application. This will be especially important if you are securing the slide only at the rear and front! I’d be reluctant to use this type with this heavy an application. Heavy duty (150-200 lb), full extension, secured along its entire length slide is the only thing I would consider.
but they’re sold out.
