I load em and shoot em (using 108 Berger BTs). My forming load shoots well enough I used it in matches with no difficulties.

Re: HELP- fireforming to .243 ackley

I just loaded up medium powered loads for my Ackley 25-06. Never got a usable case from Winchester brass, though. They all split in four places. Remington brass worked well, and all the expensive stuff...Nosler, Lapua, etc., all worked well. I did experience one surprise, though. The Ackley improved cartridge almost doubled the recoil from the original 25-06. I took it down to Benchmark barrels to have a brake put on and talked to them about the problem, and they said they see that all the time. They claimed the increased neck angle causes that.
