    I got SnapCaps at the local gun store. I imagine most gun stores will carry them.

    I would imagine most gun stores would carry them, I know my local gun shop does but it's a bit of a drive for you.

    Make your own...

    Punch out the spent primer from the brass. Then fill the primer opening with a dab of silicon. ;)

    Every time I go to a gun show there's someone selling singles for $2-3 each in a variety of calibers. That's the way to, as I have no need for the multiple round packs sold online.

    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. :rolleyes:

    I buy mine at the local gunshops.

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