Ok.... time for an ignorant question.

I've known about paper patching for quite some time, but I always thought it was primarily to promote a good seal between bullet and rifling.

But.... if you are casting a bullet the correct diameter, then squeezing it down enough to take a paper patch, then lubing it... isn't that adding a couple of extra steps and a paper patch to a bullet that was ready to use as is?

I need more explanation, I guess....
