Pyrodex "P" is for pistol and RS is for rifle /shotgun but either will work if you can't find exactly what you want.

Whereabouts are you located, Sir?

Britsmoothy and I are in UK, but most everybody knows that. Telling us where you are might help with the cap problem.

The 1851 should take #10s. If #11 for the rifle are hard to find get a second nipple and thin the cone to use the #10.
I use Pyrodex P in bother hand gun and rifle.
