Possible reason for the musket cap could be that the original owner may have been using pellets instead of loose powder.
When the pellets first came out ( and prior to the big inline explosion) sidelock guys wanting to use the pellets had ignition trouble. Needed more ignition heat, therefore went to the musket cap.

Just a thought.

If I were shooting loose powder I'd go back to the #11.
