Jim Shockey's "GOLD" and Percussion Caps

Recommended Posts

I have discovered that Jim Shockey's FFG "Gold" seems to take a hotter percussion cap to light-it-off, especially in cold weather.

The Remington No. 11 percussion caps seems weak and useless, whereas the CCI No. 11 percussion caps will light off anything in any temp.

Has anyone else experienced this as well?

Rifles: two different BP firearms: first one is a more modern Thompson Center Hawken in 0.50 Cal version with a 29" barrel, the other is an older CVA in 0.50 Cal with a 32" barrel.
