Percussion caps and powder shortage
« on: November 29, 2021, 09:18:24 PM »
I have some Goex and caps squirreled away. Pyrodex as well,  which I seem to find in some of the stores.
Anybody having luck finding caps?
I may have to work on getting a flintlock.

I found some Remington no 10s at my local store. bought some and left some for other guys. haven't been shooting them much because how hard they are to find.

 :)  Buttes  ;)

Caps can be a real prize.  In another vain though, I cannot recommend Pyrodex.  That stuff is a rusting agent that just happens to burn.  I have seen the stuff flash rust a barrel in just minutes after shooting.  Better as fertilizer.

Would suggest either APP or 777.  Anything other than Pyrodex.

So glad that Goex is going back into production.
