Seems like I remember a website that had barrels that did just what you're talking about...I'll have to see if I can find it when I'm not so tired.

I remember reading similar to what you're talking about but I too don't have the reference site.

Also, there was a website (sorry, don't have that either) that fire-forms using hydraulic press.

I fireform for my 243 AI by shooting a loaded bullet from the rifle. It groups 1/2moa and while velocity may be lower it is pretty consistent. I will hunt with my "fireforming" load.

Any more, this is what I recommend doing.

I have 3 wildcats that require fire forming and have built many more and they all shoot under a 1/2
MOA during fire forming with hunting loads.

In the 280 AIs I use standard 280 Rem Loads as well as every other wild cat. 22 K Hornet,223 AI,
7/08x40,30/06 AI,300 Rumbo,338/375x40 (These are not Squib loads but standard hunting loads
and velocity's.

Unless you are in a hurry to fire form this works well and no more fire forming is necessary as is with
Squib loads and barrel life if not wasted fire forming with loads that can not be used for anything.

I also use standard loads to do the breaking and end up with over 20 fire formed cases to start load
development with the modified cases.

It seems like a lot of trouble and expense but each to his own.

Well number 8 and 9 (in the following link) may be what remember reading. I haven't found a place selling them yet online.
