hello I bought this snap cap Cabela's -- Snap Caps

and it says its good for thousands of dry firings but the center of the cap where the hammer falls is worn out after 5 firings. Is that normal?
What do you mean by worn out? As long as the firing pin hasn't broken through and left a HOLE they are good. You can also use previously fired shell casings as snap caps.

No hole just a rounded out curve in the shape of the pin.
That is normal.

Snap cap is going to slow the firing pin down. Denting in the cap part is good cause it won't put so much stress on the tip of the firing pin.

The rounded dent is normal, just like after you fire a live round and it dents the primer basically. They are good for thousands of dry fires, think YEARS not months.
