matching paint to freak inserts???

I'm just getting back into the game and new to the freak barrel system. How should the paint be matched to the freak insert? snug, roll through, real snug? I'm not sure so I'm asking all the knowledgeable peeps here on pbnation. Thanks in advance for the tips.

I've always sized my paint so that I can put it in the barrel and have it not roll out, and be able to be blown out with a hard breath. Not sure if that's the "current" or "trendy" way to do it, but I don't get barrel breaks, and I don't get roll outs.

A lot of people I've seen post on here were all about underboring. I underbore and haven't had any breaks except when I had a little bit of paint/dirt/something else at the end of the barrel.

I believe pump is right. If you can blow it out then its fine. If you can't move it without a swab you're a bit tight. If it falls through then you're overboring and in my mind defeating the purpose of a kit with enough sizes to actually fit the paint right.

If I'm worried about breaks, I do this. If I want to squeeze out the efficiency, I do this and then go 1 insert lower. I've never noticed an accuracy, breakage difference between the two, but it gives me a "buffer" in case of humidity/the cold/etc.
