    My 7mm-08 AI fire-forming loads are quite accurate, but not as good as the real thing!

    I had excellent accuracy from the fire forming loads in both my 25-06 AI and 30-06 AI.
    The Sako Factory Ammo I used in my 25-06 was particulary impressive.
    I take it you have the 'Ackley Itch' that needs scratching .

    Both my 338-06AI and 280AI's (2 of each) shot the fireforming loads very accurately! There is no reason not to hunt with fireforming loads...I did with good success..

    With my .243 Ackley both the fireforming and the formed loads were as accurate as you could get!
    My .260 Ackley is very accurate but i do get the odd flyer! im currently working to get a formed load thats accurate.

    So yes the forming loads can be as accurate as you need.
