Wish I had read these reviews first

1

Sure wish I read these reviews first. This was my first year Black Powder hunting and I bought a new CVA Optima V2 rifle. Three hunting trips in a row these caps failed to ignite the powder. They would "pop" and then nothing. After each trip I would clean the gun thinking maybe I wasn't getting it clean enough or dry enough. Today was the last day of the season (and a third missed elk). I was beyond frustrated. So I totally cleaned it again, checked to make sure my breech plug was clear, fired two primers through it, then checked the breech plug and it was clogged again. Awful, Awful product. I should also note that the container I have (and was recommended by a local sporting good supplier) is identical to the can above except that it says "Multiple Use" instead of "re-enactment Only".

Terrible

1

I just bought a 1861 Pedersoli Springfield Repro and am thrilled with the gun. However, my experience with these all around awful musket caps is making me want to throw in the towel. The caps fail to ignite the powder 90% of the time and I've probably shot 150 caps only firing a total of 20 rounds. What musket caps do folks recommend??? These are just awful and I want to use this gun for hunting.

Not for any muzzleloader use

I purchased these CCI musket caps for use in my Inline.50 cal. These caps are not adequate for black power or pyrodex shooting. NOT EVEN IN A PINCH!

No Problems at All

I've used these caps for reenacting and my daughter has used them for 4H muzzle loading shooting, using a Hawken rifle with a musket-cap nipple. I purchased 1000 for practice and competition and over the last year and a half, we have shot just about all of them up with patch balls, and the only misfires we had were if she forgot to load a charge - which was not often. She took 1st place this past July in the state shoot and they fired every time. I don't know why people are complaining so much, they have worked as advertised for us.

Follow-up Review to my 1/28/17 Review

5

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!

Don't even bother with these!

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 $

1

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

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
