Yes, BPI is putting that on their website and all of their mailings now. The new 3 in fiocchi hulls are coming with a magnum primer standard, this is not the normal fio616 that we are used to in that all the data is for! I have never seen any data for a fiocchi magnum primer. BPI says that they are going to provide data soon, but they say that about every wad they begin supplying and usually 10 years goes by and still no data, or four or five data points.

Basically we have zero idea how hot that new fiocchi Magnum primer is, because there are no data points in existence of anything loaded with it to use as a comparison. Even assuming that it will be equal or less then the Fed 209a is a complete guess. I wouldn't Burgess or use any of them until I either had some data for them, or some solid comparisons with Federal, Rio, and CCI Magnum primers.

Ballistic Products has published some 1.5 ounce buckshot loads using Longshot powder. Two with what they are calling the Fiocchi 616 Magnum primer and one with the Fiocchi 616 Standard primer. There is a substantial difference between the flattened spherical powder charges shown with these two primers.

Indeed, this Load of the Week data includes this description of how Longshot powder responds to the new Magnum primer in these loads:

"Longshot has shown a very volatile change, which could be traced to Longshot’s ignition qualities."
