which percussion cap works best
The last time I shot my Pietta Model 1851, the CCI #10 caps were not going off. This is the 4th time I have used the gun. I have cleaned / taken it apart, after each time I have used it, making sure the nipple's are clean, and not blocked.
The gun is 3 months old, and I have shot maybe 40 rounds over that time. The last time I used it, I was able to shoot 10 rounds, using about 30 caps. I tried shooting the same caps 3 times while they were still on the nipples. The last round did not go off at all. Should the caps be put on tight or just snug?
Will a #11CCI cap resolve this problem, or should I try another brand?
Thank you for your help.
