      Just found my batch of brass that I processed earlier this year back in January. I have sense discovered I bumped the shoulders back more than necessary. Now I would like to just fire form on this lot. Had various boolits to use and the normal powders. My thought process was 10-12 grains unique, 13 grains of Red Dot or something with 2400. What does the team think?

      Well, seat the bullet out to the rifling and just shoot the suckers
      with your normal load.

      Mike has beat me to my suggestion…..I prefer a medium to heavy load with medium burning powder and a 170 – 200+ gr bullet for such fire forming chores as too light a load can be a waste of time with inconsistent results.

      Also, if a push feed with a strong ejector might want to remove it for the fire forming. If you don’t want to do that seat the bullet backwards so the GC jams into the leade. Such loads can be fun for casual shooting as they usually are much more accurate than many think.
