I went to Walmart a little while ago to get some #11 caps. They had 4 tins of Winchester caps and that was it. All kinds of 209 primers and they had 8 AR-15s in the gun rack.

More ARs than packs of caps, who would have thought something like that would happen 9 months ago.

i bought quite a few #11's at frontier firearms last year. traditional stuff is getting more scarce all the time. I'm wanting to start casting my own lead balls.

It's just a sign of the times. Modern muzzle loading hunting is the way most are going and the demand is for 209 primers but not #11 caps. Walmart is just following the money. I can't blame them for that.

I predict it will only get worse for the traditional hunter if you're going to try to depend on Walmart.

Better find local sources if you can cause a lot of places online won't ship anything to do with BP to Tennessee anymore. You can get a truckload of regular ammo shipped to you but not one bullet for a muzzle loader.

I have some 209s left since that is what I need I would hate to have to track down #11s.

the real crime is that #11 caps will turn green and won`t fire after a year or so. I have BP revolvers that use #11. Have had caps turn green after 4 or 5 months.

Dang!.....What kind of caps and how are you storing them. I've got caps I know I've had 20 years and they are fine.

I'm using caps and Pyrodex RS that was bought in 1983! I hope the caps hold up. Dad gave me 1000 or more of them.
