thank you for the explanation that you replied to what is a plunger typo and how to make it.like the knight wolverine inline. i tried to upload some images but it says the files are to large. you take the plastic rubber tubing. about 3/8" long and slide it over the small rifle primer so that the end is exposed, then slide the assembly over a #11 nipple.
that sounds very interesting. why not try real BP, instead of PYRODEX, witch is junk in BP, guns, and as said straight BLACK might work, thanks for posting the use of plastic caps. I am going to give it a try.I tried the toy cap gun caps that are plastic ring. Cut the individual caps off. They fit tight on #11 nipples, I think they would be water tight. I failed but was loading with Pyrodex. May work with a little 4f boost would work with BP. I'll try it soon.
Maybe we need to invent a d-i-y kit for knapping your own gun flints and call itThere used to be a tool a company sold where you'd use a pop can and form the shell and then glued in a paper snap cap, they stopped selling them quite a while ago. Tap O Cap is what it was called if I remember correctly. Some said they were not worth a damn, others had good luck. My advice, STOCK UP! Its the percussion locks main weakness once you run out.
