I was going to add to the other thread but i thought this may need a new one.
People have wrote on other threads that compressing the ACS spring a whole bunch of times will help with blowback/popcorning. How does this help it? I thought blowback/popcorning is just air being blow back through the feedneck. I would think that this would have nothing to do with the ACS bolt.

same as my thinking, the only true way to stop popcorning is to get a bolt with an oring. or you can just buy a force fed hopper.

Your right, but maybe because the ACS bolt is a little lighter than the stock one (the aluminum (sp?) one ) it wont have as much 'recoil' which would then make not as much as a shake, to popcorn the loader.....

maybe?
