Anyone know anything about these Winchester #11 Magnum Black Powder Percussion


Recommended Posts

So all the Cap and Ball discussions on the wire got me to start wanting to play with mine. I do have 3-400 Remington #10 caps but wanted to save them for big shoots. Drove all around looking for caps, Only ones I could find are Winchester #11 Magnum Black Powder Percussion. I have never heard of these before, does anyone have any experience with them?  CCI #10 caps don't fit my Silx cones.

Sorry Rafe, But Ima dry hole.  I have never even seen Winchester #11 MBP Caps.  CC#11 will fit your Slix.  No clue what Winchester #11s will fit.

 

Maybe Prairie Dawg (My Hero) can chime in here.

Yeah I was also looking for CCI#11s but dry hole when I saw these! I know magnum primers work when I load my suppository loads. But have never seen or heard of these! I bought a couple of tins but was wondering if they affected pressures, I load 30 grn. black in my pistols. If nothing else they should work for my 50 cal Hawkins.

Hi Rafe:

I've never used them, but this is what I have heard.

  • They are very hot & were designed to use with substitutes, like APP & Triple-7
  • They do not fit Treso or slix nipples very well -- too loose & tend to fall off when the gun is cocked.

I've never seen any dimensions, so I can't say which nipples they fit, or even if they were made for use in revolvers.
Good Luck!

Please let us know how they work.

What nipples are on your guns?

Thanks
