PostSubject: Fiocchi 616 Primers   July 24th 2011, 9:58 pm

I havenít been to the range since March 2nd of this year. Got off my last 12 hour graveyard shift this morning. There was no wind so I decided to go shoot. It was 83*F
when I left work and very cloudy. Didnít see much sun, so that was a plus.

I had ordered 4 jugs of BH209 ($108.00) & 1,000 Fiocchi 616 primers ($25.00) from Edís Gun Shop for a total of $133.00. No hazmat fee, no shipping charge, just $133.00

Gander, you need to order some BH209 from Edí Gun Shop and have them add some Fiocchi 616 primers.
Iíve been shooting BH209 with CCI 209M primers. I didnít think that I had much blow back with my Apex .45 cal. until I shot the Fiocchi 616 primers. Iíve always cleaned my gun really good after a shooting session, but the face of the breech plug (primer end) is usually pretty black after shooting and has had a stain that I couldnít get of with Hoppes 9. Every time I removed a spent Fiocchi 616 primer from the beech plug there was no black, just the same level of stain that it had before I started shooting. The Fiocchi primers really seal off the blow back. After a few shoots I had to start using a primer tool to remove them.
When I cleaned the gun after shooting 3 primers to foul the barrel and 17 shots, I noticed a lot more crud than usual when I ran the drill bit down the flash channel. I suspect that was normal since it wasnít blowing back into the breech area.

Now, about the stain. Gander has recommended Bichwood Casey Bore Scrubber. I had ordered some and cleaned the gun and breech plug with it. I think I got about 99% of the stain removed from the breech plug and the barrel almost blinded me.

Thats odd that the Fiocchi primers were cleaner. They are a pretty short primer.

I have some shims for the Apex plug if you want to try. Pretty simple things i made with a pop can and a paper hole puncher. We use them in our Apex.

That BS is so damn good stuff im telling ya!

Run a few dry patches to push out loose fouling and follow up with a couple wet BS patches.

Very Happy
I've been shooting Fiocchi 616, 209 Primers now for awhile since Carlos turned me on to them. I've never had a problem with them. The key I find is to keep your BP CLEAR OF CARBON UP. I use a drill bit on a "T' handle and reem out the flash channel and a pick to clean the flash hole. As far as the junk in the barrel I have the same after shooting. As far as I can see it doesn't have any bearing on the accuracy.
Good luck this season muzzlenut.

Ray........... cheers

I got some of the Fiocchi primes from Carlos as well and they are the cleanest primers I have ever shot.

Fiocchi primers always seemed to work well in my Kodiaks. † I don't use them in my Apex because of the need to shim.
