Default How To: 100 ea .22 snap caps for $4

Being disappointed with spending $3+ for .22 rimfire snap caps and having them last 4-5 times, and having tried most of the ones on the market, I found a cheap, effective alternative that I want to pass on:

Go to your local home center or hardware store and buy a package of #4-#6 YELLOW Plastic wall anchors. The chamber perfectly and most of the time, will eject when the bolt is opened.

I find they work for around 10 dry firings, and being bright yellow are easy to notice. When they get chewed up, I cut the rim off and put them in a fired case to check magazine feeding.

For $3 or $4 you can get 100 of them that will last a long time.

Just be sure, as with ANY snap cap: When you eject it, make sure it is complete. You will not want any fragment left inside the barrel prior to firing. Take a moment and examine it for missing pieces.
