huntinmanchris wrote:yes sabotloader, parker advertises that bullet at .420 @ 2800fps, need to figure what it is with 2100fps, still an very impressive bullet. The barnes tmzs averaged just damn near the same velocity, now its time to put both bullets to the paper at 200, and 300yds, gotta see what i get with T7 havent got there yet, have another question, the caps are not fitting snuggly on my nipple, could it be undersized, do i need to call knight and get replacement?
For some reason and a reason I do not understand, the more common #11 nipples manufactured today, like the Hot Shot - Red Hot - the post has been reduced in diameter so that it no longer hold #11's snuggly. In fact the new nipples are so loose simply turning the nipple upside down often ends up with the cap falling off.
I think I have found the answer...
My first attempt was to order some RWS nipples from RMC Sports. They came in the mail on Tuesday. They certainly worked better than the more famous brands but in my mind the cap still came of to easy.
So next I went to Track of the Wolf to try some AMPCO produced nipples.... SUCCESS!

TOW offers both the AMPCO Bronze RST-A and the Stainless RST-I both of these are 1/4x28 for American made rifles – but they do offer the other sizes also.
The nipple I placed on the AMCO in the picture is in place correctly – it fits so well it would be very difficult for water to get under it to contaminate the cap or the powder load.
Downside…. They caps do not come off easily…
accuracy could not be as good with the nipple being loose,? do you use a peep for your rear sight if so which one do you suggest, model #, or sku # would be appreciated, Again thanks for the tech support talk at you later
