repacking silencer, how tight should the packing be, loose vs tight

how tight do you guys make your silencer packing, what is the correct tightness, i have fit a whole thing of packing before which makes it louder and also left it looser to, why do you guys prefer and do

I always pack on the looser side, over packing it just turns it into a straight pipe, loose packing causes the exhaust to flow threw the holes more freely which creates more back pressure.

see thats the thing, when you mean looser, what way do you tell its i guess loose, so it slides in the canister without compacting it?

Iv'e always gone on the "tight side", seems to last longer and not 'blow out'.
