Cool I am glad to hear that, I really enjoy it and it is fun if you love to shoot and as always like I said, pretty cheap, once you buy the brass which isn't too bad, 25 bucks per thousand bullets no matter what caliber and the less than 30 bucks per thousand primers..... cheap to shoot 1000 rounds any day and anywhere you want

Not bad, but I still like the idea of the Spitfire wax ones instead, no reloading equipment needed at all so anyone can shoot them, plus I am reading where people state they need to crimp the brass slightly to hold the rubber ones, and right now the normal primers are hard to find whereas the 209's for Spitfire's setup are still easy to get.

I use these in 38/9mm and they are great. Fairly accurate, safe, and very cost efficient. Can be reused many times too. No recoil/ little to no flash, and not much louder than a pellet gun.

Customammo72 Believe that crimping is not needed. May brass has allways been from some old used up hardened brass with no resizeing after the last use. You need to drill out primer pockeys so brass is only useable for rubber loads. A primeing tool and thats it. Never ever crimped my brass in the 20+ years I have used them. Even tried some magnum primers on 357 brass. Wax has to be reworked each time and just messy when compaired to the rubber . But if you like them was bullets use them. Just know there other practcal "practice bullets" out there.

The only reason someone might need to use any crimp at all is if they flared the case mouth, meaning they already have reloading tools.

I am not sure I was just reading some of the comments about them on the website that users had posted and some mentioned light crimping. I never rework my wax ones, they are 25 per thousand no matter what caliber so not worth it to me to try to re-use. I am not knocking the other practical ones out there don't get me wrong, I was just mentioning the wax style Spitfire ones for people who have no reloading equipment experience cuz they are assembled just by hand. I do like these other ones that have been posted too and will give some of them a try to see what I like the best, I am interested in all of them, hell especially because of the scarcity of ammo/reloading supplies to make sure I have plenty of ammo to shoot when I want to. Plus just had spine reconstruction surgery and lots of metal rods and screws put into my back I like these practice types for just being able to hobble with my walker out to the garage and sit in a chair and practice a little bit, to pass the time and to keep up my practice period even tho it isn't real ammo. But for right now I am using the wax ones cuz I can get the 209 primers pretty easily and cheap compared to large pistol or large pistol magnums, etc.

Yeah that's kinda what I was thinking too because only a few posters had mentioned it, it wasn't very many from the comments I read thru, I was just curious about it, but I agree with you, that does make sense.
