I met with one of the managers at my local S.W. where I had purchased these musket caps and explained the inherent-by-design liability of using these caps for "live-fire" loads; resulting is routine misfires, which in the interest of safety on the line, must be treated as potential hang-fires. S.W. was very concerned with my experiences with this musket cap and graciously issued me a store credit for 5 unopened packaged tins that I was returning and indicated that they would not be returned to the shelf for resale but rather marked as "defective". Additionally, my local S.W. indicated they would seriously reconsider whether to continue marketing CCI musket caps to their shooting customers (vs reenactors, of which there is minimal presence in my area). My local S.W. does carry an ample supply of the German musket caps (which sell for app. 27% more) but when you consider an app. 60% misfire rate (if even fired at all!), the reliable German caps come out as a much better bargain. To CCI's credit, I have never experienced a problem with their # 11 caps and would not hesitate to purchase those (albeit I have experienced an app. 2 - 3% failure rate with CCI "small pistol primers" and therefore opt for Winchester which have been 100% reliable for me).
So as not to be misunderstood, the 5 star rating is not for CCI Musket Caps but rather for Sportsman's Warehouse conscientious customer service with regard to this product!

If you are a hunter or target shooter, dont waste your money on these caps. The old extra strength caps were great. These new reenactment caps are to weak to consistently set off normal charges. Stick with the RWS caps.

Don't even bother with these!

By 

from Sacramento

Absolutely ridiculous that these caps are even marketed for use as a musket primer! Yes the tin label says for "reenactment use" but the clamshell package also says for "live-fire" and states nothing precluding use as a musket cap for normal target or hunting loads for which this cap is absolutely unsuitable. I have a "patent breech" style rifled-musket and these caps just won't work after the bore gets slightly fouled (using Black Mz), even though I swab the breech and bore after every shot. After about 5 shots, I get delayed ignition (which is exactly the point that the "patent breech" attempts to negate) and after about 20 shots: zero ignition, even though I also pick the nipple hole after each shot. I finally gave up after about 20 shots as I had to remove the nipple and drop a couple grains of 4f into the nipple hole to even get a shot off at all and avoid having to pull the patched .50 cal. ball. Maybe this weak cap will work with 2f black powder or R/S or a straight breech (I guess it depends on how many angles this weak ignition spark has to travel in your particular rifle) but that remains to be seen. I bought 8 tins of these things not realizing the problem with this cap until I researched the web and found out about CCI essentially "decontented" their musket caps. If these caps are strictly for "Reenactment ONLY", which appears that they are, that should be clearly stated! My interpretation by the label "For Reenactment Use" was simply that they were "safe" for reenactors to use as opposed to solely for reenactment use, especially considering that here on the West Coast, "reenactment" is not as prevalent here as maybe in other parts of the country. I feel that "Sportsman Warehouse" should make this clear on the shelves and on-line before this stuff gets pawned--off on unsuspecting customers (in the first tin, I only got off 40 shots out of a total of 98 caps which included the initial couple "clearing" caps).

Don't waste your $

By 

from NW Oregon

At least don't waste your money if shooting CVA Optima V2 Northwest. Since RWS sold out, thought they would probably work for practice, especially using real black powder, but wouldn't fire. CVA says not to use these, and wise to listen. When is Sportsmans going to restock the RWS?

CCI Four wing musket caps

By 

from IDAHO

I have to say these Musket caps are the worst I have ever used!! I recommend you don't waste your time or Money if you are a Hunter, they are not hot enough to light the powder charge, go with RWS #1081 they burn hot and are reliable. made in Germany , and that is sad considering the CCI are made in Lewiston Idaho my home state..I gave them a 1 star because it would not go any lower

CCI Musket Caps

By

I was afraid to make this purchase after reading other reviews. It's been about 20 years since I've owned a rifled musket and CCI changed there primer strength. I have a new rifle and have used these caps with black powder and have not had any misfires. I don't see any problem with them. I was prepared to to change nipple styles but found no need to do that.

If you are a hunter or target shooter, dont waste your money on these caps. The old extra strength caps were great. These new reenactment caps are to weak to consistently set off normal charges. Stick with the RWS caps.

I have had several misfires with these at the range. These caps are not quality and would not use these for the range or hunting. I notice that they do not seem to be as hot as the German caps.
