    I was wondering which percussion caps that Yawl like? I have both cap n ball and a frontier rifle. Would like to know both sizes and makes. Thanks

    I pretty much like the RWS caps, no 11. They are hot and don't get stuck on the nipple when fired.

    I use CCI #11 (standard) on my C&B revolver & RWS #1055 on everything else that's not a musket. I found the CCIs weren't always reliable on my rifles, for some reason, but they work just fine on the C&B, so am using them up on that. Once they're all gone I'll most likely stick with the RWS for everything. Have never used Remington caps.

    I've been using Remington #10 & #11's for years & am very sattisfied with them.

    RWS 1075's is also a very good maker of Caps.

    Also use Remington 10's and 11's since they're slightly less expensive, and work fine (at first I thought they had problems, but realized my BP revolver had issues and needed some smithin' - works great now).

    I use the CCI Magnum #11s in my Knight rifle and 1858..........they are much more reliable than the standards IMHO, since they have a noticeably larger amount of priming compound in the cup.
