I just saw these on Dillon's website under the "training and practice accesories".  What are they for?

so you'd load them the usual crimping way, just sans the powder?

just press 'em into the empty, primed casing...

hmm...maybe I'll try a few out sometime.  Will a primed only case cycle the pistol?

Made for city dwellers to practice firing in your garage.

You can set up a trap with two pieces of rubber sheet. The first one is cut into 2" wide strips and the second is solid to catch the rubbet bullets.

I have some old plastic Speer ones that I have loaded into 357 they work and give those poor souls in the city a chance to do more than dry fire.

seems to me without the kick and range all u are doing is checking to see if your primer will go off....

its like throwing a dart at a dart-board 1 foot away????

About 400 ft per second. Would want to be hit with it.

You could put an eye out!

Just practice to hold on a target and practice pressing the trigger. Cheap practice.

I have some that have been used about 10 to 15 times before they cracked.

My wife used it to practice trigger pull on a 357 revolver.

It won't cycle a semi auto , you will have to single load those.

seems like it would be cheaper and easier to just train with an airsoft pistol....
