Most of those big box stores only carry modern muzzleloading manure. If you don't see traditional muzzleloaders in stock you probably won't find traditional supplies. Wall Mart seems to be the exception in some places.I get so aggravated with my local Sportsman’s Warehouse store. Since they’ve been open, I have never seen Caps here. Not even a place on the shelf for them. I really don’t think the guys that work in the gun department know what percussion caps are. I ask him where the spot on the shelf for them is. He said when their stock is empty, they remove everything from that location. Signs etc. I do not believe that. I hear other people on this forum talking about, their local sportsman’s warehouse stores carrying caps but not here in Florida at my local store anyway.
But yet they stock gold panning equipment. Who knew we had so much gold here??
Yes. I agree. But I hear others on here saying they’re getting caps at SW. it appears the store stocks the same times no matter where they are since I see lots of items here that are mainly used up north.Most of those big box stores only carry modern muzzleloading manure.

They were going for $7.xx a tin here BEFORE 2020 at Cabelas (who has not had any to this day since) and now they are $9.99 at Scheels (only place I have been able to find them).I gotta make a trip to Walmart and see what they have. Was in there a couple weeks ago and nothing. Went to a sporting goods store yesterday. They have Remington caps but they want $10.00 per tin. I don't need any that bad so I'll wait and see if Wally World gets some in.
I had that same issue at Scheels; web showed they had them and first guy checked in back and told me some must have them in their cart (Second time I was told that) BUT just as I was leaving a woman asked me "Finding everything okay?" I told her No, this was my second time in, website says you have them but you dont. Well, she checked her phone and said "We have them, I just saw them. We have a whole box. I know where 'the guys' are hiding them, wait here"Both Remington and CCI are owned by Vista Outdoors inc.
My preference is RWS but I take what I can get. Stopped at our wallyworld and askif they had #11. They showed inventory but could not find them.
I suspect they are doing as they did 22s ammo a few years back, employees taking them to the flea market on weekends.
Look around on this forum. I and several others have logged our experiences. Plenty of YouTube stuff too. It's easy and I ain't going back to store-bought caps if I can help it. Shortages, schmortages. They work better too.There should be a whole taught course on the best ways to do this.
