I was thinking that most of my issues are loading cut plugs ... or not rubbed out flakes enough . Plus loading the pipe to the top . With razored plugs .. all that needs happen is a burning plug piece under a top ember and .expansion ... then .. pop ! Ribbon cut seems to be ok with any issues . But then again .. I simply do not load my pipe to the top for this reason ... and other reasons. I like my rims clean . On a serious note ... I use a 30\06 cartridge unfired as a tamper ...just to see if I can get away with it !! The Condor way... @Spillproof ... the anticipation ! 😉 when I use a 500 nitro express ...that when I really feel alive !
