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???

When I competed in round ball m/l matches I was very serious about every component of my load. I cast my round balls then weighed them for consistency, I used teflon coated pillow ticking, I sifted my black powder and I used one brand of caps ...........RWS. My belief was that the hotter the cap the better the ignition. We tested different brands of caps by how far they would lift a dime off the muzzle of a longrifle. 25-30 years ago RWS was the best. IDK about now. But, I've still got a stash of RWS caps.

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.

Well this is disconcerting, because my first percussion rifle is expected any week now. I had better come up with some way to fire it up, or it will end up hanging over the mantle and never moving.
