Best buy's
« on: May 29, 2017, 08:42:21 AM »
Where did you get your last percussion caps and how much did you pay?

I am shocked at the price of caps today. I am just about out of the last large cap purchase. Looking to replace my stock and wondered how much and where you all got robbed with?

Thanks for the info.

Hi Ted, you can get CCI caps for ~$39/1000 from Grafs and Sons:

You will also be required to pay the $20 hazmat fee, but also buying PB or subs at the same time minimizes the hazmat cost.

I keep an eye on Sportsman's Warehouse since there is one nearby.   $5.99/100 is their usual price.  Ends up about the same as buying online and paying hazmat and shipping costs.   I try to keep a couple thousand on hand so whenever I use a tin full or two I replace them.   

Cabelas and Bass pro get $7.99/100 around here.
