    Mine was no problem. I've fire formed factory ammo in mine just fine and also fire formed handloads using the load I developed for the AI.
    Later on I acquired a substantial amount of 5.56 ammo made by Norma in the 1970's that cannot be fired in my other bolt 223's but fireform beautifully in the AI. And they shoot well too...
