According to my understanding, in California, a black powder gun is considered UNLOADED if it does not have the caps on. In other words, it can be loaded with ball and powder as long as the caps are not on.

Now whether you could carry the caps in your pocket is questionable. Because having a firearm (read pistol or revolver) empty, but having the ammo in your pocket would be considered a loaded firearm, as the ammunition is within your reach for use.
