Guys, I know everyone who uses #11 caps use a Capper to put the #11 cap on the breech plug nipple. I'm curious as to how many DWB's use a Musket capper to put on Musket Caps or does everyone use their fingers like me.

Wish i had a plug to try them actually Ed . Kinda wish Whites had nipples a guy could change . Think it was a cva(?) Plug i got the mag spark in. Not nearly as good quality but it wasnt $50 either . Just sayin.....
Maybe one day i will get a musket nipple for it and see . Heres a question for you--- how do you guys get a #11 nipple slimmed down so the cap will go all the way on ??? My cci mag #11s wont go on all the way . Sandpaper isnt working hardly at all to slim it down . Is it the cap or the nipple fault . That plug is HARD !!! I got a musket capper and id use it . Big hands .

Fingers here also, tried them in a Whitetail but didn't see much advantage to em. I think I used my fat fingers because I don't have a capper for them. I'm pretty sure I got the breech plug from a Super 91 that I bought a few years back. Don't use it.

Hot #11 caps work fine with 777, better with 3f but will work with both..more then likely your nipple is a little over sized, just take some emery cloth and sand it down a bit at a time until your cap goes on snug.

The permatex thread sealant with ptfe # 80632 available at a auto parts is the best ive ever found flounder . NOTHING reaches the threads EVER . Cleans up decent too . Pull your plug in and out and no need to reapply till you clean it up completely . No matter the powder no matter how many shots either . It is KING in my book. Ed's trying it now !!! Look at pa marshall's post on breach plug grease in inline forum . I posted about it there and i tell how i use it . Its NEVER let me down , for over 20yrs.

Never heard of it! ;););)
I bet not !!! If i had the money i swear id rebottle it and clean up !!! I discoverd it years ago . I dont think inside the box flounder , never have . I dont think you would ever regret trying it . It does what i say . Best ive ever found and no.need to look further for me . Ive worked for Nascar teams , Miss Budweiser Hydros , etc and made changes and discoveries that have won Championships in nearly every form of motorsports . Fluid Dynamics is my game . Stuff had better perform !!!!!!! 2nd place is not acceptable . This stuff that i say is king , IS KING !!!
