well, I ifill to the top but there is a distinct notch about 1/4 down the PF, If I fill just to the top and then lightly tampe down (push till there is reisitance) then polish off, that's all I do. My grind is almost powder. I am not packing it in. If you just keep it loose but move the PF around and fill very slowly, you will get a nice even distribution. I learned this from Dawg (Scott) it works very well. He says he slaps the doser about 40 times per fill (doppio) on his machines. I probably hit it about 20 times. Give it a try.
