The Remington 209 Shotshell primers are made for inline type muzzleloaders. Except for Civil War type muskets that use musket primers, all muzzleloaders with the nipples on top use number 11 caps. Carbon build up can cause the cap from going on. Clean or replace your nipple with a stainless steel one and the number 11 should fit again..

The 209 primers will use a nipple specifically designed for the 209.
