it gives the firing pin something soft to hit. empty brass with silicon in the primer cavity. i think they're a great idea for working on trigger control etc. but i wouldn't waste your money on them when you can make them yourself.

I buy mine at the local gunshops.

Loved the .357 Mag snapcaps when I was taming the trigger of my EAA Windicator.

I use snap caps when practicing with my revolver.
