It's not a cap and ball. I have a couple of cap and ball pistols and a cap and ball rifle. Another hobby of mine (of which I have too many of). The cap and ball are separate from each other (not a cartridge; primer, charge and projectile combined together) where the powder (charge) is loaded into the firearm, then a ball is rammed down on top of the charge. The percussion cap is then placed on a "nipple" behind the charge. If you're interested, See this link.
