Hello all

RON L here = SERESURPLUS



Yes, I agree with what the other fellow said, Snap caps, by thier very invention, were to allow them to be cycled into the action, the firing pin to be protected by the firing pin hitting the spring loaded fake cartridge, I have a few in 45 acp as well as 22 LR, have made some in 308, as well as 3006 by re-loading a spent shell in my reloadr, inserting a new bullet, I add a dab of Silicone cement instead of a Primer, works just as well as a spring loaded snap cap and is tons cheaper! If you re-load the shell as you would a live round, leave out the powder and Primer it can be safely loaded and fired and protect your weapon, just as a snap cap!

This is an argument that's as old as mud. Over twenty years ago the feeling was you could dry fire firearms without damage to them. Fast forward to the present and it's generally considered a good idea to use snap caps. Twenty years from now.....:cool:
