I just got these nipples and when installed on my 1860 Uberti, the CCI # 11 caps rub against the frame and jam the cylinder. Seems that the nipples are too long.
# 10 caps are not available in Honolulu.
Any suggestions?

Have you tried to use the hammer and push the caps down further? Could be slightly larger and just need a little extra help to seat them.

Yes. Didn't help much. I could then drag the caps around, scraping their tops.

Sounds like you better contact the nipple supplier, they may have sent the wrong nipples?

I did. Called Bad Man Bullets and they suggested I contact another individual. I'm waiting on a reply.
BTW: You Air Mic(United)?

I'd send one of the original nipples to track of the wolf and request 6 GOOD ones that fit.

Maybe you've got the wedge pressed in too tight?
Wedge depth is a variable that is meant to adjust cylinder gap,,
That little clip in the wedge is supposed to keep the wedge from falling out when pulled, it's not meant to be pushed all the way to the far side as a clip or keeper.
Just throwin out ideas

I have a pair of nipples made for a revolver, and they are shorter than #11 rifle nipples. (They came from Amco, via Track of the Wolf.)

In a worst case you could file the down to length. I can't file mine a little longer though!

The nipples are longer then the stock nipples. I don't want to do any work on them. :surrender: Think I'll just return them to Bad Man Bullets.
BTW, Track of the Wolf has a 90 day wait for 1860 Colt nipples

Slix-Shot nipples are made to work with #10 remington caps. I have tried CCI#11 and RWS 1075 caps
and they work so-so if you don't mind a few cap jams.
My guns are equipped with cap rakes so the jams are at the water table not the hammer channel.
I have no solution to your problems sorry.

Treso all the way, use them on everything. Plus they look good.
