Grimord That is is exactly what I need to know, thank you. As far as "Time Consuming" driving to 5-6 different LGS, Big Box, Mom & Pops in a 75 mile radius wastes time as well as gas. I think this will pay for itself in Gas alone after the first few 100`s or soI have had one for a few years now. With the right components, a steady hand, and time you can make caps that will go off just like store bought caps. They will not work in cappers, at least mine don't. Very time consuming to make, but worth it if you want to keep shooting during the cap shortage.
Hope you are right, but for the past year I have been shooting my flint locks, and I am starting to shoot them better than I ever did. Practice and necessity seem to do the trick.RWS Caps are starting to come back in stock with at least one of my distributors. Caps will be back before center fire primers and probably shotshell 209 primers. At least, if past scares are any indication.
Grimord I am with you, thinking I should get a few flinters, to add to my collection, as well as learn to shootHope you are right, but for the past year I have been shooting my flint locks, and I am starting to shoot them better than I ever did. Practice and necessity seem to do the trick.
That is the one I got me eye on I found them whilst I was tripping around the internet looking for casting suppliesFanboy, I got one from sharpshooter22lr before the shortage began. I have been useing them for a year now with good results. I don't use the mix instead I use punched out paper caps 4 for each cap. I tried the mix and due to my mixing I had a few failures to fire. I use a multi hole pliar punch to make the paper fit tight into the made cap then put a drop of 50-50 mix of acetone and clear nail polish for water proofing and holding tight the paper caps. I have not used a soda can but dubbled over aluminum pie tins for the stiffness I wanted. May not be pretty but works when you can't buy any I'm still shooting!
