Recently bought four tins of CCI#11 Magnums from BPS online. Took them to the range yesterday. Five caps in a row failed to detonate. The nipple is in good condition. I have some older caps that worked just fine. In one of the tins, I found a little disc of go bang material.

Never experienced anything like this with CCI caps. Caps were 3 cents a few years back. Now they're 15 cents. That won't put anyone in the poor house.

But regardless of cost they need to work EVERY TIME. Spoke with BPS and they will issue a refund at a brick and mortar location.

Frustrating.

At least BPS offered an option, they told me to contact CCI. Which I have and they had me return the caps to their office.
Haven't heard back, that was last week.

That's BS from BPS. A retailer is an ambassador for the products they sell. If a product fails, the retailer has an obligation to stand behind that product. Then the retailer needs to chew the tail off of the product manufacturer. To determine what the problem with the product is. As time goes by, more and more companies don't care about the quality of their product. They put out junk and we still buy it. Again, frustrating.

Out of curiosity what's the code number on the lid of the caps ?
