    CCI Musket Caps

    Have not tried the new CCI caps for re-inactors, but I did call and talk to one of the techs at the CCI/Speer factory. He informed me that CCI was no longer making the style 300 musket cap; only the re-inactor cap. He also said that this new cap was not as "hot" as the old cap.

    I too use the wingless and have for several years. I find that they are hotter, get jammed far less frequently than the winged ones and of course the price is better. Just my two kopecs.

    Don't waste your money on the CCI "Re-enactor Musket Caps." They are less than worthless.

    I LUV THE RWS 'WINGLESS MUSKET CAPS," now, I prefer them over the winged musket caps.

    my shiloh sharps & I prefer the wingless. Wings seamed to jamb once in a while.

    I was told last year that the wingless caps were being discontinued... has that situation (hopefully) changed? I certainly hope so since my Romano Maynard and Euroarms Zouave both do well with them.

    I've also heard the wingless caps have been discontinued. Which is why I'm sitting on 17,000 of them.

    FWIW, they work fine. You don't cut your fingers on the flanges.
