Edge fireforming

Hello

My 338 Edge should be showing up in the next day or two. I would like to get a few rounds ready.
I would like to fireform my cases with as low a pressure load as possible.
I would also like to use Hornady 225 SSTs for forming.
I have RE 19, 22, & 25, Remington brass.
I plan to seat the bullets out to the rifleing, but till I get the gun, I am unsure of the actual measurement.
Any helpful advise would be appreciated

Thanks

If you have a standard Edge and not an "improved" version fireforming is not necessary.

Hello

Non improved case, 300 RUM case opened to 338

Will there be a change of group size or poi between a fireforming load or a second formed case load ? ( can I work up a load with new cases and expect repeatability in a 2nd load case )

Thanks

the load you use for the first time will print the same as the second or any after. there will be no difference in the case dimensions with a standard edge. like Shawn said, there is no fireforming needed with an Edge.
