Percussion caps turning in capper device

So I got my package in and I was trying to load the capper with percussion caps. They seem to want to turn over and sideways inside the capper? Unless I am EXTREMELY careful I can't get them to line up and then trying to use the capper to put one on the revolver doesn't seem to easy either. Truth is it was a lot easier just using my fingers to cap the nipple.
Why don't we go to school and work on the weekends and take the week off!

Cap the cylinder with it out of the revolver.
Hell I probably need another one already heaven forbid I go around half cocked and unarmed!
I used one of these before I went to Flint ignition.
Alcan - .075
Fiocchi - .0625
CVA - .038
Replica Arms - .056
Dixie - .052
Obviously the last three are "house brands" and I don't know who made them. But my point is that there is a huge difference in length. You might just have to hunt around for a brand that is long enough to not tip sideways in that capper.
P.S. Thanks for catching that "oops', festus,
