I haven’t bought any in a while so don’t know about the availability.Are you giving them away or? I hear they are made of Unobtanium right now. Naw, the factory nipples work OK, was just thinking outloud if maybe there was a good way to make those undersize caps serviceable.
I use a wooden Dowell to do the same thing. I always have it in my range shooting box!Try seating them with the hammer. Point the revolver down range, let the hammer down gently on the cap and push. It won't go off but if it does, so what. It works on my rifes where I have been using #10 for everything ( I don't have any muskets).
Strange things happen, I have a traditions percussion 50 caliber, that I wanted to use stainless steel nipples on, so I ordered a pair and the first thing I found out after put one on, is a number 11 would fall right off. I had quite a few Remington 10s, and they fit real nice, but the rest of my 10s were CCI. They are a touch smaller it seems like but I can place them on all the way with my finger, I can imagine that the dangerous to do is I don't use a lot of force. I carry my caps in a Ted cash cap holder, it must hold close to 100, and that works real fine. I can just strip them on, Give them a little nudge and they will work every time. I suppose the original nipple is a number 11 but I never tried it.Try seating them with the hammer. Point the revolver down range, let the hammer down gently on the cap and push.

Last October I was at my closest gun store which is 120 miles away and is In the center of Montana, and bought a couple of tins CCI number 10 caps. Then along this winter, I find out there getting darned scarce by all the postings on here, so I been holding my breath, so I could get back to the gun store, but I didn't want to go until I had my covid 19 shots. Well sir, today I got there and went to the gun store and they had number 11 Remington's and quite a few. Without changing nipples I have to use number 10s, but I bought two boxes anyway. He was charging $6.25 per hundred. There also happens to be a gas station In the same town, that has a lot of hand loading stuff for sale so I stopped there on the way out of town and he had CCI number 10s for $6.85 per hundred. I asked how many I could buy, and he said whatever you want I've got 2000 more on hand. So I only bought 300, I don't believe in hoarding, and this is more than enough for least a couple years. I happen to know that the town I was in also has a muzzleloader club, though I don't belong, and a muzzleloader shoot every summer, so apparently though shooters aren't that worried because there were quite a few caps available. Both Dealers said I could have what ever I wanted. With what I already have on hand, it's almost like overkill. I wouldn't have bought The Remington numbering 11s, if I would've known about the other fellow had number 10s, but my shooting friend has to have number 11's so it'll probably be all right.I feel very lucky as I have a small local gun shop that always has CCI #10 caps in stock.
