    I never thought I would see the day when black powder caps became scarce. I can make my own black powder and cast my own ball, but I can't make caps. Does anyone have a source for both #11 and #10 caps?

    They became unavailable back in 2013 or so, too. I bought a cap maker similar to that one from a guy named Manny in California who is on youtube and some of the forums.
