Fireforming loads

Can fireforming loads be used for LR hunting in the field, i.e., can I expect low ES, with decent velocity? 6mm AI-- probably 87 gr. V-Max to 800 yds. on coyotes. Also any suggestions for fireforming loads?

Re: Fireforming loads

Low ES and good velocity (not max velocity) are obtainable while fireforming the 6mmAI. I have had groups of .5" while blowing out Norma 7x57 brass to the 6mmAI.
Hunting looongrange MAY be pushing it a bit. I "huntform" my cases but look for closer targets when fireforming.
There is a wealth of 6mmAI info on this site:
