Re: Rifle that will not fire ????
What other choices do you have for percussion caps? The ones he bought were CCI No. 10. Is there a hotter version that will fit the nipple?
I just looked up CCI caps and it appears the CCI 11M cap is expressly for igniting black powder replica powder and pellets (which is the powder my friend bought). I'll see if I can get some of those before I cart this monster to the range to test it.
I want to test his kit supplies just to make sure he didn't do something wrong. He bought them all at a Black Powder store where you would think they would not sell him something wrong. I think he said he went back to discuss his problem with them and they sold him a different nipple. I only found one nipple in the kit (.028 inch hole apparently for #10 caps).
When I go to the store for the caps I'll make sure the nipple I got is correct too.
Thanks for the tip. I would not have thought that the caps might not be energetic enough.
