I found that this lets the bowl breath better. This method works really well for tobacco that is more dry like Nak.
I've found that packing down wetter tobacco leaves a lot of unused tobacco at the bottom after I've finished. It all clumps in a glob there if I don't keep it nice and airy. Have yet to try a dry tobacco brand.
