    I use cotton balls to take up the space in the case. The trick I found is that cotton balls are actually cotton rolls and if you unroll them before stuffing them in the case they blast out in a cloud of lint. If left rolled up they can come out as a burning blob.

    I will try this. It was my next step but it's good to know it's working for people. This paperpatching if really affecting my home life. Back to the garage.

    I used the foam backer and my groups improved significantly. I shot 4 with pp with neck tension and 5 without neck tension just press fit. And both groups sized at 4".

    I have had it happen and boy is it detrimental to your score.

    There were patched wet and I believe I had just too much patch folded into the base.

    These were from the muzzle loader by the way, not the BPCR & the distance was 100M.

    I got around it by cutting three slits in the ones I had left...apparently it was common practice back in the day with target shooters?
    Don't follow me, I'm lost too!
