We derive upper and lower bounds for the Turán density of $B_i^{(k)}$ that are close to each other as $k\to\infty$. We also obtain asymptotically tight bounds for the Turán density of several other infinite families of hypergraphs. The constructions that imply the lower bounds are derived from elementary number theory by probabilistic arguments, and the upper bounds follow from some results of de Caen, Sidorenko, and Keevash.
