Snap-caps / dummy rounds

Post by Oldbindlestiff » 08 Jul 2012, 11:19

Since my latest toy is a lever gun, I want to make some dummy rounds to practice loading and unloading the rifle to help smooth-out the action. The drilled, dummy cartridge is no problem, but, I am wondering what to fill the primer pockets with.

All suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

That's what I used, and I believe Jay uses.

Thank you! And, for once I don't have to make a trip to buy anything.
