After going thru a $9.00 package (6) of .22 LR snap caps while setting up the trigger on my new CZ 455, I remembered an old trick from many years ago. These actually work better than and last longer than commercial snap caps.

BRILLIANT!

They will soon ban then as they can be fired from a ghost gun.

Are snap caps necessary for a rimfire?

Yup. You really shouldn't dry fire a rimfire. Once or twice, not a big deal. Definitely not a good idea to do a whole bunch.

Gotcha. I wouldn't dry fire any firearm, but once heard someone saying rimfire was OK.

Dry fire is important for improving your skills. Just not good on some rimfire firearms.

The anchors work great, cycle perfectly from a Browning Buckmark magazine.

If you .give it some thought, the firing pin hits the rim of the cartridge and if there is no cartridge, it could hit the chamber area that the brass is normally against, thereby damaging the firing pin and shoulder of the chamber.
Some manufactures say it's okay due to their design, but I wouldn't chance it.

Sorry for resurrecting this older thread, but what are your thoughts regarding using these anchors as a cheap snap-cap for a gun chambered in .22 Magnum?
