Re: First time Fire Forming to Ackley

2.045" is Max Case Length for 243ai.

Never had a problem fire forming 243ai or 280ai. Was it a rechamber from 243win? If it was did the smith set the barrel back properly (providing proper headspace and a crush fit) or ream it out and screw it back on? You might have a few things working against you.
