I have shot 260 ammo out of my 260ai and my buddy shoots 223 out of his .223ai. Gotta fire form the brass somehow.

If it is a true AI shoot the parent cartridge. You will loose a little velocity but accuracy is usually still good

Lots of A.I. cases were standard brass before having been fired in an A.I. chamber.

I dare say "most".

I shoot a 257 AI. I either shoot factory Roberts or use standard Roberts cases to reload to fire form. Have a batch of new brass that I'm fire forming.
