A-Zoom Snapcaps


Snap Caps main

I don’t know about you, but for me these little guys were one of those items that just kept being pushed to the wayside. These beauties can be had for $16-$18 and I always would look and say, “hmm .. I'd rather buy a box of ammo”.  To me, their value as a training aid never seemed great enough to warrant the expenditure. However after buying my first wheelgun that can utilize a speed-loader, changed this for me.  I wanted the ability to practice reloading with a speed-loader while at home and decided that snap caps would be a great safety measure to ­­­­take.  My entry into using these with speed-loaders have piqued my interest in utilizing them in regular magazines while training with semi automatic pistols as well.
