Default Fire formed brass in a different rifle?

I am pretty new to reloading and have a question. I had a Savage 300wm that I wanted to work up a load for. I loaded a bunch of once fired brass with 208 Amax’s over H1000 after neck sizing only. Then I sold that rifle without shooting my reloads. I bought a Remington 700 milspec 5r 300wm that I want to work up the same load for. I chambered one of the reloads that were fireformed in the savage and they chambered and extracted easily.

Can I go shoot these in the Remington for load testing? Any concerns?

Shoot them. Then they are fire formed for the new rifle and can be neck sized for the next loading. You may have to slightly bump the shoulder after 2 or 3 loadings.

If they will chamber, shoot 'em.

I would advise against neck sizing because it is not as consistent as FL sizing. You can adjust to barely bump the shoulder and not work brass any more than sizing neck only. If your ammo fits, shoot it.

Remington chambers have plenty of room. As long as they chamber and extract easily they will be fine.

They may not be as accurate as they have potential but they will fire.
