As you can see I use mine frequently. Actually I have made a game of chambering one and while watching evening TV I practice my trigger break and sight picture by shooting actors on screen. The more the show sucks, the more practice I get in. It's great therapy!

Prepare for a potentially stupid question....

Do they make .22 rim fire snap caps? I just did a search and all I can find are dummy rounds.

A couple of my friends have mentioned to me that

to get more accurate, I really need to shoot one

rifle, and focus on the accuracy with that one rifle.

They may be right.

I'm great with a rifle, it's the darn handguns that are causing a problem. I could focus on one at a time though.

Dry fire practice makes a WORLD of difference. At least it did for me.

Just sight your target...something stationary across the room, SQUEEZE the trigger, make sure you still have the same sight picture...repeat.
I thought that I was the only one too cheap to purchase Snap Caps..... I also use spent rounds to practice with, but I fill them with kids play dough to give them a more realistic weight to them.

Yeah, I saw those. They are more of a dummy round. It says they aren't a snap cap or meant to be used as one right on the package.

Pachmahr makes some rubber .22 snap caps .

The problem in question is flinch, in this case pulling down as the gun fires to prevent muzzle flip . One solution is from Bruce Gray of Sigarms : The Bump Drill -
Aim in and squeeze the trigger repeatedly just short of firing. Sooner or later, you'll accidentally fire the gun----and see what a surprise break is like !

Canebrake is exactly right, you should practice "snapping in" with snap caps.

Do it in front of a mirror.

That will tell you everything you are doing right and wrong.

Good luck.
