Every place I have checked is back ordered or out of stock. Does anyone know a source for #11 percussion caps? Thanks.

I remember there was a tool designed to make your own percussion caps out of aluminum beverage cans and the rolls of paper caps used in cap guns. I wonder if it is still produced???

Rich, Powder Inc is expecting to get an order of #11 caps (RWS as it happens) in a couple of weeks. It did not arrive this week. For what it's worth, it is all but certain that Remington caps are sourced from RWS, and that Winchester caps are sourced from CCI; but that doesn't mean they are available. I got a sleeve of CCI caps from Graf & Son 3 or 4 years ago for $205, I expect the RWS caps will go for 2 to 3 times that.

I can relate to the quest for a nice Muley with fine percussion rifle.

In shotgun, no. In rifle, there is a difference. In my Pedersoli Mortimer "Whitworth" .451 not (hexagonal) I find that I get slightly better groups with regular than magnum caps. But, using the same caps all the time is more important. Group size also changes with load and fineness of powder. Virtually anyone shooting rifle competitively uses Swiss or Eynsford, probably 2FFg or 3 FFg. Right now, most folks are shooting whatever powder they can find, exclusively.

Best of luck with it.
