The advent of the bore-drop was in response to the problems of the stick-feed. The stick-feed placed all the weight of the paintball stack in a near vertical line. When you got on the trigger with this feed on a regular breech-drop, you had to push the entire stack and it's weight back up the feed stick to feed the ball into the bore. This led to many chops and breaks. When box feeds came out, you only needed to move a stack of three or four balls, making the need for a bore-drop redundant.
