What happens when percussion caps are in short supply?
Well you make your own.
The supply chain is a weak spot for any hunter or shooter. When the store is out of ammo or components to make your own ammo things can get a bit dicey.
In this video shared by YouTuber foguista we witness a way to make percussion caps from easily found supplies. Many of these supplies are found right in our own homes. Toy caps become the fuel for our DIY percussion caps.
If you are a fellow muzzleloader shooter best take note and watch this video. Now percussion caps can be easily made right at home during any shortage. That certainly is peace of mind for any smokepole shooter.
