    I have a new Remington model 700 in 25-06 that I am thinking of having AI. This concept is fairly new to me so i was hoping someone could help me out . Is it worth the trouble ? I know I will have to fire form to reload ,and how hard will the dies be to come by ? Someone please give me the pros and cons if you have experience in this please.

    Not terribly difficult, but you won't gain much. It isn't hard to fireform, basically just load and shoot. I'm guessing you will gain 100-150fps, not a bunch. If you are happy with what you have, stay with it. If you just want to try something different, go for it. It is fun to try and you learn something in the process. The dies will be relatively pricey, so it is your decision if it is worth it.
