Answered my own question.
Here is the reply I received from Fiocchi USA. Note it is also reply to my inquiry about a specific load, as well as the 617 and 616 primers.
The bottom line is that the 617's are not available in the US and not interchangable with 616's.
The factory loads I have are equiped with a different color primer than my 616s, for what it is worth.
Below is the response from Fiocchi:
The best source for load data regarding our hulls and primers is for you to contact the powder company making the powder you use. You can visit their website or contact their ballistic assistance by phone. Fiocchi does not generate reloading data for our hulls.
We had a small batch of 617 primers a few years ago but before and since, we distribute exclusively the 616. Check with your powder supplier for data pertaining to each. I would not recommend interchanging them.
