Default Bad Crowns?

I bottled tonight and started to use some BB crowns I got with one of the kits I brewed, this lot was Drark Green (all other crowns I ever got were silver) in capping I snapped the top off 1st 4 I capped. changed to some BB silver ones and no issues,
Whats up?

size? I think there are some smaller caps - for smaller bottle openings. But I'm not sure.

Measure the height of the caps, the green ones MIGHT be a wee bit shorter.
Regards, GF.

Put a Caliper on the caps, the green one are a little smaller in Dia.
for grins I tryed capping some 12oz "long necks" capped nice

The brew I was bottling last night I was useing Founders bottles, I dont have any (with out beer in them) to check neck dia vs the dia on a standard long neck

maybe Founders have a little larger Dia and with a Crown with a little smaller Dia is what it was
