Any of them are good.

I use the red ones with the rubber center. Or plastic. Not sure what it is.

But they are great for drills.

I have some, use them and like them. Mine are A-Zoom from Lyman. They we're the only brand the shop where I bought my XD-S had in stock the day I got them.

I don't know if they're the best, but I use Tipton snap caps and they work fine for me.

I need to pick up some snap caps to work in at the range. Maybe I will pick some up from Amazon tonight so they will be here in time for the weekend!

I'm fairly new to shooting and just bought snap caps. Don't mean to be asking stupid questions but can you reuse them after practice firing?

Yes sir you can!

Don't be afraid to ask qeustions here. This is a family forum . We get alot of new shooters here all the time. Plus the search button is kind of.. well.. it goes full retarded sometimes. So you may post something thats already there. Its worth a try and seems to work well for me.

I use them to get familiar with a new pistol. Great for SA pistols as you can use one and not have to keep racking the slide

Absolutely! Best thing for dry fire training which is fundamentally proven to improve accuracy. I balance an empty shell casing on the front sight and attempt to keep it there while firing. Familiarizes you with trigger break and grip and will greatly improve your groupings at the range. Best of all, it's inexpensive and can be done at home with proper safety precautions. Remove all live ammunition from the room you practice in. Brand shouldn't matter but I use A-Zoom.
