    I’m able to find CCI 11 caps, but no Remingtons, which is what my Old Army prefers. As for small pistol primers, good luck. I finally found some large pistol magnums the other day, but was limited to two boxes. Too bad I didn’t have more people in the car that I could send in.

    As a last resort, these will work.
    Found them cheap on amazon. Use care!
    Since they are plastic and kinda stretchy, they fit #10 and #11 nipples and they stay on even better than pinched #11s on my Pietta revolvers. Haven't really HAD to use them yet as I found a few tin's of VERY vintage #10 caps on ebay. But I gotem if I need em, and they DO work.

    Mr.woodnbow...about how many tins out of 10 sent do yoy have left? Not sure how much or how often you shoot. Also the remington 11s should fit any aftermarket performance nipple like tresos, slix, uncle mikes etc..not sure if you use any of them brands of nipples

    Hey Kid... I shoot most days even if it’s only a round or two and a cylinder full on the pistols. I still have four tins of the 11’s. I’ve been using them for about half the time on pistols and saving the 10’s for serious work... thanks for checking in!

    Remember when Arnold Schwarzenegger was looking at all the guns at the gun shop in the movie Terminator? I just happened to recently walk through the sporting goods section of my local Walmart and noticed a small selection of black powder stuff was just put on the shelf for the upcoming hunting season. An entire box of CCI #11 caps was sitting there. I took the whole box to the counter and the cashier asked how many I wanted and I blandly said “All.” It was awesome!

    I pick up a tin every time I go into Wally World. Had to really look for them this last time as some jackass manager keeps having the store rearranged.

    The local gun store clerk already knows what do to when he sees me...he immediately sees me and gets all the remington percussion caps, knows im not there for anything else. So as soon as its my turn to get served he already has them at the register for me.
