    I'm thinking of getting some snap caps for my wife and I to practice with. Anyone hear of this brand?

    I use the ones made by Triple K. I have heard good things about the A-Zoom brand too. Here is a link to the Triple K and a picture of mine in .40 cal.

    I have snap caps in .308 for my PTR91... I like to put them in there for simulation of a bad round and to help me with weapons malnfunction drills. They're great.

    While I use snap caps for a number of things, I don't use them for revolver reloading practice, due to the light weight. I take expended cases, leave the expended primer and load new slugs with no powder.

    I actually started with 12 gauge snap caps to practice various things, dead round, unloading, etc. Great tool, highly recommend them as they can be extremely versatile and safe.

    I have been using them in all of my pistols/rifles.. I prefer the A Zoom by brand. They are aluminum, maroon in color, and a decent weight..

    I'm too cheap/poor to buy snap caps I just make dummy rounds when I reload and use those until the bullet pushes in too far and then bang em out and re-seat them. I do need to get a set of real snap caps, one day maybe. I throw the dummy rounds in the mags of my friends when we're @ the range. It's a great training tool. I sometimes put them in a new shooter's mag so they can easily see what I mean when I tell them they are anticipating the recoil and dumping their shots.

    I have them for my various .380 and 9mm pistols. I use them for training, such as my daughter, or other friends and relatives who are interested. That way they can learn how the rounds are loaded, chambered, and ejected. I also use them for practice when drawing and firing at home. I also use them sometimes after cleaning my guns. That way I can feed several rounds through to make sure I put everything back together correctly.

    They don't actually make them for .22 or any other rimfire products as far I can see. I have some dummy rounds for .22 but they say specifically not to fire the gun because the firing pin will dent the dummy round. I guess it is because it is hard to make a rimfire with a rubber rim.

    Nothing wrong with this. If I did did reloading I'd take dummy rounds in a heartbeat.

    Yeah, have someone stick 2 into every magazine in a random place. Just wish the suckers were cheaper though.

    I do the same thing as Chevyguy. I just load some various bullets in empty cases, and fill the primer pockets with silicone sealant. Works good to for tuning extractors and such without having to use live ammo.
