    I heard on another forum that it's 72%, is this figure correct?

    also would a round go off if the pin dropped accidently?

    It is indeed 72%.

    Unless there was a really, really soft primer the pistol would not discharge.

    Precock is 72%. One the forum here, MrApathy reported some testing he did earlier this year using primed cases and various levels of precock. It's a sticky in the ammo & reloading section.
