#11 percussion caps.

ive been using a german brand, dynamit nobel, for years. they store really well, and fit tight.

im almost out of my stockpile of them, but i bought 500 winchester magnum bp at wallyworld for $15.

they seem to fit looser(on my knight wolverine). they sound just as loud tho.

anybody got any experience with them(winchester)?

what brands do you normally use?

Winchester caps are rebranded CCI caps.

The ones that I have been running into latelly are the CCI's. I have used others in the past. These CCI's are fitting tight on new nipples or at least that is what I'm seeing and we are talking #11's.


Be Safe !!!

As Ronald Reagan always said, "Well..."

I use CCIs 10 and 11 and I have some old Remingtons which I have nearly shot up.

I haven't bought any RWS caps since K-Mart stopped selling them. And RWS is the only brand that won't fit into my TC clear view snail capper because they're just a little too tall.
I mostly use both old & new Remington caps. Old #10 Remington Golden caps fit the same as today's Remington #11's because they used to be made oversized.
And the old Remington Golden #11's were like #12's and will fit oversized nipples.

dynamit nobel

Does anyone know where to find Dynamit Nobel RWS #1075 percussion caps?
I bought some a few years ago, and they work great, but now I haven't
had any luck finding any more of them to buy. I believe they're made in Germany. If anyone knows where to find them, please let me know...

thanks

Midsouth Shooter's Supply and Dixie Gun Works have the RWS 1075 Plus which are the RWS "magnum" cap.
But I don't see the regular 1075's around as much anymore.

I didn't have any success with Winchester Magnum (aka CCI) caps on my factory ROA nipples. I switched to Remington #10s and #11s and they work great on my factory ROA nipples and my Treso nipples I put on my Pietta and Uberti made revolvers.

I prefer CCI. RWS are a lil too tight but function well. Remington's are a lil loose and the 10's I use are bad about losing priming compound. I'd not use Remington at all if I could find #10 CCI locally. I do use RWS musket caps tho.

Fiocchi percussion caps.

I have a 20 year supply.

I do have plenty of Remington, CCI and RWS caps too.

I do have a brick of Remington #12 caps too. Rarer than hen's teeth, but handy if you have certain 2nd generation Colt percussion revolvers from the 1960's.
