Has nothing to do with not being able to push the bullet out.

Basically it does not give a burn but a detonation which turns into "a significant emotional event" if you are the one pulling the trigger.

Has to do with light loads, air space and basically you cannot below the minimum starting loads recommended in the reloading books.

    Similar to running a car engine too lean. Lots of air too little gasoline - bye, bye, head gaskets.

    My infamous mistake was by wanting a little more velocity in a reduced load. Too much pistol powder (IMR4227) in a large rifle case is just as bad as too little.
