It should answer all your questions.
Treso nips were made for Remington #11 caps.
#10 and #11 have the same inside diameter, but the length is different.
I've used Remington #10 and Treso nips on all my cap guns every weekend at cowboy shoots for years, and they have never failed me.
IMHO, it is worth the extra effort to find them
So I found that Track of The Wolf makes stainless nipples for the ROA that have the outside dimensions of the original nipples with the hex head design, but have a Treso interior dimension. They are also a little cheaper.
They claim to be designed for CCI #11 caps. I have tried CCI #11 magnums as that's all that's available, and they don't work well for me. They often need a second strike despite using a dowel to help push them on. Nor do they work with Rem #11's, which need to be pinched on some of them. What I have found works well is Rem #10's, and I've yet to try CCI #10's or find and try CCI #11's.
PRA-S is the product number for those ToTW nipples.
