Yupper...says right in the 10/22 manual dry fire is a point, obviously

I don't have the magazine in the firearm at all, it in the safe beside it and the spent casing is fed by hand. But I don't plan on strictly using that as my snap cap. I just have to find some where around me that sells them for a .22 as I've only seen them for shot guns so far.
