It works like a go --- no-go gauge. The first 2-3 inches of the bore takes the most fire from the combustion of the powder. It removes metal from the bore --- the fire burns it out to the point you have a funnel at the beginning of the bore -- you check it with a bore erosion gauge -- if it slides in -- no good -- if it doesn't -- good.
