I AM THINKING OF CHANGING THE NIPPLE ON MY TRADITIONS 45 CAL LIGHTNING FROM THE MUSKET CAP NIPPLE TO THE NO 11 CAP NIPPLE, HOWEVER HERE IS MY ISSUE.  THE MOST ACCURATE LOAD I'VE FOUND IS 80 GRAINS OF FFG 777 GIVEN THAT THE BREECH PLUG IS A NICE CONCAVE FACE SIMILAR TO THE CVA 209 BREECH PLUG WILL THE CCI MAGNUM CAP RELIABLY IGNITE TRIPLE 7 ?  I HAVE A BOTTLE OF NEW BLACK MZ ON HAD AND SOME OLDE ENYS. ON HAND AS WELL HOWEVER I'M NOT SURE I WANT TO PUT  REAL BP IN A RATHER COMPLICATED BOLT ACTION MUZZLELOADER .  THE REASON I WANT TO SWITCH TO THE 11 CAP IS THE MUSKET CAP SEEMS TO THROW PIECES OF EITHER THE CAP OR PRIMER BITS BACK TO THE SHOOTER AT FOREHEAD LEVEL WHICH IS SOMEWHAT DISCONCERTING AT BEST AND DOWN RIGHT DANGEROUS IF YOU FORGET YOUR EYE PROTECTION, WHICH IS SURPRISING AS I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THE SCOPE WOULD HAVE ELIMINATED THIS AS AN ISSUE.

AS ALWAYS ANY HELP IS DEEPLY APPRECIATED.

Google Red Hot nipples and google RWS Dynamit Nobel 1075+ caps.

Getting both of these products will make you instantly forget about musket caps. You won't ever look back!

If the RWS are impossible to find, CCI-Mag #11 caps are also full strength.
