Hopefully this isn't a dumb question:
As I was shooting my AK a few weeks ago, I noticed that as the round went into the chamber, a small amount of the bullet was 'shaved' off by the throat of the chamber. Now I've heard that the bullet/cartridge (7.62x39) shape was designed to facilitate feeding into the chamber, thus eliminating a feed-ramp. My question is, is there anything that can be done to eliminate the 'shaving' off the bullet as it enters the cartridge chamber. Can the chamber-throat/shoulder be smoothed (fluff & buffed)?
Just a question....
