    Tried the usual guys? Gunworks and shooters supplies would be a good start

    gun city do have CCI #11s if thats handy for you

    Gunworks usually do also and their web site is mostly up to date
    They have quite a bit of black powder of various grades

    I probably have at least 100 #11s if you do want to lear up over here again and FFFG black powder and some Triple7

    @norsk I have a new unopened packet of CCI four wing musket caps.

    Don’t know if they are any use.

    Thank you for your offer. But musket caps are too large to stay on the nipple

    Not trolling, but a friend of mine told me he uses these on his Kentucky percussion rifle. Be able to pick some up in $2 shop monday a.m.
    If you want to be sure they do the job, you can double the contents of half of them with that of the other half.
