Since it's a powder being rammed (and not a liquid), you don't get true hydraulic behavior so the vertical pressures in the casing during the ram are greater than the horizontal forces - there's not enough force to pack the powder tightly around the core.

Anyway, that's only my theory - I am not a motor manufacturing expert - IANAMME



It would also have to be a longer and more fragile pintle, and they would likely be broken or bent often.
I love sanding.
