Please be advised - these snap caps are a waste of money. I don't know what .45 ACP these are supposed to fit but they are too long for either my Smith & Wesson revolver or Kimber 1911 and cannot be used for the intended purpose.

I was unpleasantly surprised when a set of these in .45ACP required unusual force to load into a moon clip (any of several tried) for my S&W M625. This suggested that the rim diameter, at least, was out of spec. Suspicious, I tried dropping them "free" into the cylinder, and they would not chamber -- not even close. I would have had to pound them in. Real cartridges chamber smoothly and freely, needless to say.

A total waste of money. I live and learn.

My rating of this product is a compromise between it being just a snap cap or snap cap & gauge. As a snap cap this product would rate three stars. As a snap cap & gauge I would rate it five stars. A detailed comparison of the spec tolerances for 45ACP from different sources was my intention but it's tedious work on my end and I've decided to post rather than have the continual delay.

Some other reviews here have comments of this snap cap jamming and I have experienced the same but it's not the fault of this snap cap. It's your/my pistol.

These snap caps measure within spec in all respects with the exception of the extractor groove diameter limit of 0.40", measures around 0.040 to 0.042" using a Mitutoyo dial caliper. The extractor groove being out of spec will not cause jamming issues when these snap caps are manually cycled in the pistol. A jammed, stuck or otherwise difficult to release snap cap is indicative of an unusually tight chamber. Generally such a pistol should not be used for self-defense because of reliability issues and should be fine for recreational uses like target shooting.

My experience of jamming issues of three different pistols chambered for 45ACP using thousands of rounds of my handloads correlates with jamming issues of these snap caps. My most reliable 45auto is the S&W 745 that has no issues with these snap caps while my Colt Gold Cup will jam or rather will be hard to cycle manually using these snap caps. The Colt has nowhere near the reliability of the S&W 745. While I no longer possess the Sig P220 chambered in 45ACP, most likely would have issues with these caps indicating a tight chamber design similar to the Colt.

I have purchased this brand before and I am not sure what's going on but the packaging was correct, the product wasn't. The snap caps that were in the package were almost identical the the A-Zoom brand. They were aluminum instead of plastic. Odd because the package says they are plastic but they are clearly aluminum. I have returned and will look for the plastic ones elsewhere....

I was looking for something to dry fire through the current ammunition shortage. Went to several local stores and everybody was sold out of snap caps. These are the same ones sold in a lot of stores too. I have not had any issues with these snap caps. They even eject when I manually rack the slide.

Doh! They don't eject, jamming on extraction. So what did I expect? The cause would probably be lost on Homer Simpson, as it was lost on me when I bought them.

Of course the first one loaded from the magazine will not eject when the slide is manually pulled back. The bullet simulator is still in the case and the ejection slot is not wide enough to clear that easily. How often do you unload a misfire?

Don't forget that when loading from a magazine, the first round must be removed before the second can load. And that can't happen while the extractor still has a grab on the rim, and the tip of the bullet end can't clear the ejection window. Doh!

Since I wasn't thinking when I bought, it's hard to diss the product. The problem not mine is that fumbling around with more than one in the mag causes dings in the rim that should be smoothed out. I think the brass is softer than that of an average case. I knock off a star for that.

So beware, don't expect these to eject. I have learned to NEVER, NEVER, NEVER drop the slide without something to load from the mag, so that's what I'll do with these, one only in the mag, then use the ol' thumb to cock and fire again for training.

You may have upwards of $5000 invested in that thing, why would you want to drop the slide on an empty chamber?

One of the previous reviewers mentioned that he us using a hard rubber cylindrical insert into the primer slot. I think I'll find the hard rubber motor mounts I stashed some where, hope to find a gasket cutter the right size as the .45ACP primer diameter then block off the case end with something short and curved so as to enter the breech and eject easily. Maybe only one will work.
