cci percussion caps
cci percussion caps are continuously tested and improved. As a result today’s CCI primers are more sensitive, easier to seat and more compatible with progressive and automated loading equipment than ever before. They utilize modern non-corrosive and non-mercuric initiator mixes for the cleanest burn possible.
Primer orders ship separately and may arrive at a later date. A separate HazMat charge per order will apply. Primers ship ground freight to the Continental U.S. only. 70 lb max per order. Due to safety considerations and legal/regulatory reasons, Primers may not be returned. Check local regulations.
We made the muzzleloading world a lot brighter in 1975 when we introduced our #11 percussion caps. Why? They were non-mercuric, non-corrosive, and darned reliable. We’ve now expanded the line to four popular products. In addition to the #11, there’s the #11M with more power to light off replica black powders. For revolvers with smaller nipples, there’s our #10 cap. And for original and replica muskets and rifles that require large, winged caps, we have the Four Wing Musket Caps. CCI® No. 11 Percussion Caps are made of a non-corrosive, non-mercuric compound mixture and are assembled in individual, ribbed copper caps for standard revolvers, rifles, and muzzleloaders. These ribbed caps are designed to fit standard #11 nipple sizes and provide clean burning and extremely reliable ignition.
When using any percussion caps for reenactment or demonstration shooting without a powder charge or bullet, only use nipples with a large internal diameter. Standard nipples intended for normal loads can clog when fired repeatedly without a powder charge, potentially causing the cap to fragment. We recommend a minimum internal diameter of 0.050 inches for nipples used without powder charges and bullets. Thoroughly clean nipples and the flame path during firing sessions. Always wear approved shooting glasses when firing any muzzleloading firearm.
