Every once in a while they have a sale and I’ll stock up. Even at egular prices they’re not too bad.

They used to list pressures on the website (maybe still do?) but they’re all CIP shells.

Also good source for 2 1/2 Inchers.

I have quite a few 16ga shells left from when you could buy directly from B&P here in the states. The problem with them is they are NOT low pressure. Stick with the RST's or polywads if you are looking for low pressure shotgun shells.

Being CIP means nothing except they are within CIP standards, the European equivalent of our SAAMI here in the United States.

+1, also not 2 1/2", but 2 5/8". B&P site used to warn that their shells were not intended for vintage arms.

Sorry, I must have been mistaken. I had thought that CIP standard range of pressures was substantially lower than SAAMI range.

For what it’s worth, here’s a B&P table of pressures for the shells they export to the USA:
