Triple 7 pellets should do fine. If you have any issues, just swap over to pyrodex pellets as they have a small end with real black powder to help set them off.

The cap should go on easy enough but not to the point where it falls off by tipping the rifle upwards.

I'd keep all grease away from the nipple, it just attracts melty lube towards the cap and will kill the cap.
