    too bad DR-B. got bent and didn't finish his thesis on the subject.
    I think it would have went further.

    http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...-a-deep-throat

    another good discussion started by Tim.
    it has some valid points on both sides of the discussion about static and a moving mechanical throat fit.
    Tom adds some valuable pictures and valid points about static fit.
    it's all an educated guess,,,, till the trigger is pulled.

    this one gets a little rough, but the information starts flowing on page 3-4.

    tHE DACRON WILL IMPROVE ACCURACY UNTIL IT INGS YOUR CHAMBER. I ringed two chambers in 2 different Springfield 30-06 rifles! Didn't have that problem with kapok, but I wont use fillers any more.

    the appropriate use of the fillers will prevent the ring.
    you use the filler to fill the gap between the boolit and the powder,, it must touch both, with compression.
    just like a black powder load, leave an air gap and you have a problem.
    it can happen with card stock, poly wads, gas checks and other types of case fillers if they are used improperly.

    something rarely thought of when designing your own boolit, but this should help with placing the balance point in the right place.

    After I figured out why the Lee CM liked to swap ends, I thought a LOT about that and it is one of my top considerations when designing a bullet. Great thread and hat's off to Tom Meyers.
