Here is a series of slow motion videos by Capandball showing the difference between the ignition times of different muzzleloading iginition systems. Of course, it depends on the quality of the lock, the quality of the priming powder, and the size and placement of the flash hole. But it is clearly visible that the the caplock fires nearly immediately, while all the other iginition systems have a short delay. The videos are filmed with 400 frame per sec and slowed down to 50%.
