Bighorn # 10 nipple?

Post by Sundogg » October 22nd, 2013, 7:50 pm

I bought a bighorn a few months ago from a guy needing cash... The nipple in it is bigger than a # 11 but smaller than a 209. Is it a #10?? Local stores don't have # 10 caps, so if I have to order it I want it to be right.
Can I get a 209 nipple instead?? I'm sure they're out there, but I can't find it.. WANT TO SHOOT IT!!!

Your probably have a musket nipple on it. Try to fit a Musket Cap in. I use the Musket cap primers in my Bighorn 50 Here in WA State, as we are not allowed to use the 209 primers in our Rifles. I don't understand why, (the 209) only gives you a more waterproof system, you still have to have an open breech here, and we get mass rain sometimes. I carried my Rifle upside down more than a couple miles this season before I got my Deer.
Hope this helps, be sure to log into the website and study the loading and unloading of you Rifle, safety is vital in Muzzle loading.
