Practice Ammo~Do You~Snap-Caps

Do you Gunner's keep a set of these around for DRY FIRING...???...<:))

A-Zoom metal snap-caps Practice Ammo
http://www.lymanproducts.com/azoom/index.htm

Metal Snap Caps are CNC machined from solid aluminum to exact size, then hard anodized. That provides ultra-smooth functioning and long cycling life. Last over 30 times longer than conventional plastic snap caps. Handles just like real ammo... ideal for training, storage and function testing.

Yes, I always use them. I figure the gun was designed to have the firing pin strike something when fired to bring it to a stop. Not having something to strike means something else is doing the stopping that wasn't designed for that purpose.

I always use them if I'm going to be doing any dry firing.

I was dissapointed to find out that you can't use the British .303 snap caps for "dry firing". How am I suppose to practice my mad minute drills if I can't dry fire with them, and what's the point in having snap-caps if you can't dry fire them?

Where did you see that you can't use the .303 British for dry-firing? I don't see anything saying that on the A-Zoom site. The .303 British is listed with the rest of the regular snap-caps so they should be fine for dry-firing. The only ones they have that they state can't be used for dry-firing are the rimfire dummy rounds. For that you need the Pachmayr red plastic ones, which work great by the way.
