You might want to join up with some other BP shooters so you can divide up the cost of the caps. Caps are currently very hard to find, so you may want to jump on the next offering and then sell off what you don't think you will need. I heard that CCI told the NMLRA at Friendship this summer that they will not be producing percussion caps until possibly the fall of 2025. RWS is not exporting caps at this time, and who knows if Remingtion will be producing any caps. Times are going to get tough, and when caps are available I'm sure the price will be high. Last time I bought caps (had to buy 1000) they were $12.37/tin of 100.

A lot of the caps showing up at Wally world are left over stock from last year. It probably won't last long, but it is nice to see that Wally world is not out to gouge us BP shooters with an inflated price on a tin of caps.

If I find some, they require a purchase of 1,000. At age 85, I think a tine of 100 would be enough!?


Check the local Walmarts. The Lawton Walmart had CCI #11 caps yesterday for $5.32/100.

You can check the inventory of Walmart stores in your area using brick seek. You will need the SKU for #11 caps. There are two SKUs. One is for CCI #11 percussion caps, the other is for magnum CCI #11 caps. The numbers are 824707657 and 304755332.

Picked up 1000 at bass pro yesterday, had them sent to store to avoid hazmat fee and it was still $119/1000.
Had to stop at Wally world on way home for dogfood, and looked in sporting goods, there they hung $4.97 for a hundred.
Never fails, always find a bargain after I buy it.

What's the difference between the 10s and 11s other than size? I polished my size 11 nipple on my jukar 45 pistol and my AMS made 1861 navy nipple so now I can use 10s. Do the NO11 have more of a powder charge or? If I don't see any reason not to I'm gonna purchase a bunch of NO10s as I have an abundant supply of those.

I am not 100% certain, but I believe the charges are about the same. The circumference of the caps is different. The #10s are slightly smaller in diameter than the #11s.

Percussion caps have been tough to get ahold of ever since COVID, however, we have started to see some trickle in. We have some CCI #11 percussion caps available on our website right now.

A little pricier than I would like, but I am glad to see you have some. 😎
