For all you knowledge hounds out there, I need your help. Obviously these primers are Alcan Shotshell Primers, but does anybody know their history? On the Back of the box it states (I took a picture but the print comes out blurry no matter what I do) "Made in Italy Giulio Fiocchi Lecco" Then it gives a description of what their make up is and suggestions on components to use them with. I won't bore you with all the print but in particular it states: "Primers fit Remington and Peters fired shot shells."
I have 800 of them and they are in perfectly fine condition. They are certainly smaller than a typical 209 primer and will not fit any Remington (STS, Gun Club), Winchester (AA), or Federal (Gold Medal) shell I have. Not long ago I had some Peters Blue Magic shells but they are all gone so no test fits there. I wish I could give an exact size, but no calipers. I think I just made an excuse to go buy calipers.
Thanks ahead of time for imparting you knowledge.
