We've Been Doing Some Experiments with Obturating V Taper Preparations

We've been doing some experiments with the V Taper files and GP. This came about because we noted that sometimes, we have trouble getting the matched sizes of GP to go to length in the V Taper preps.

After experimenting with different sizes and brands of GP, we've found that the most predictable method is to select a V Taper GP point one size smaller than the final prep.

So if you finish with a 30/06, select a size V Taper size 25 GP point and so on.

Here's some images of the different combinations we tried:
