Who has a good price on CCI or RWS musket caps (was warned about Navy Caps)?

Check Dixie Gun Works, Cabela, and Gander Mountain.

Based on my experiances with CCI percussion caps, I'd advise that you stick with RWS caps, musket or otherwise. When you get 3-4 misfires per 100 standard caps you kind of wonder about any caps made by the same company. YMMV

Well, Carl F. from NYC got a bunch of us together from the Traditional Muzzleloader Hide and we ordered thousands of flints. We got 1" flints at .87 a piece and 3/4 and smaller at .66 cents a piece. The order was so huge that the flintmaker in England, Tom Fuller, was shocked. Well, I contacted the dealer (October Country) who handled our order and am getting the musket caps from them. As my luck has been good with CCI, I'll stick with that brand.
