Default reusing bottle question

It is to the point that I will not buy commercial beers if I can use them to bottle my homebrew. I am a fan of Sierra Nevada but their bottle are oddly shaped so I haven't bought any in a long time. Does anyone know if a wing capper works on them?

They're probably one of the better bottles out there for homebrewers. Good for capping and a solid bottle.

Personally, I like the shape better than longnecks.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I use a metal wing capper that I got from morebeer.com and all I ever use is Sierra nevada bottles. I have over 7 cases of them. I like them best because they fit in my storage areas best and I keep them all in the handy SN 12 pak boxes.

I haven't had any problems capping them. They are kinda strangely shaped, so in the future if I want a SNPA (which I probably won't go out of my way to get, I really don't understand why everyone raves about them), I would go with the bombers, because those don't really fit in any boxes I have anyways.
