    Was going to post this in accessories, but figured it might be considered "commerce". Admin, move if you feel you need to.

    So I was sitting on the can looking at a gun catalog and it hit me!  :eek: Dang snap caps are pricey, I don't use them much, and they come 5-6 to a package (in most calibers). I am sure that they eventually wear out, but come on. How many of these suckers are you really going to go thru? So how about setting up a free Snap Cap Exchange? That way you can get one for one in the calibers that you need without spending the $ to buy a half dozen at a time.

    I will start. All I have are Azoom 9mm, 3 of them can go to a new home. They will be brand new.
    EDIT:I need: .45 ACP, .22LR, 12ga, 20ga, .30-06, .223/5.56, .40 S&W

    I guess just post what you have/need and PM offers. Please update/modify your post to reflect any trades done so this doesn't get all cluttered and confusing.
  2. I don't need any you have listed-  but I will send you a .45acp.  I already have your mailing info!  ;)

    [highlight]The first one that sees this and has a .223/5.56 snap cap ---Let me know and I will swap one your 223's for one of mine.[/highlight]

    I have :
    .25- .32- .38 - .380 - 9mm - .40 -.44 and .45
    Most of mine are the aluminum A-Zooms, but some are the plastic Tradition brand.

    As for .22lr-  I keep a hand full of fired cases with my snap caps.  I just use a once fired case and try to watch and make sure the fp will not strike the spot already hit.

    In case you are curious-  I just have a serious issue with dry firing a gun.  Maybe a birth defect- I dunno.  I just don't feel comfortable doing it.  After I detail strip a gun, I want to make sure it functions properly when I put it back together, so I am always running a handful through the mag after putting one back together.

    I would like to trade three (used once) 32 cal or three 357 cal snap caps for three 45 cal snap caps.

    Looks like a pretty good idea...

    Maybe we can also do a bullet exchange for us reloaders ?

    I have all sorts of bullets, but need some 70gr + .22 cal and 40g+ 20 cal

    I have some in .380 ACP and your .40 S&W (both A-Zoom).  PM me your info.  I'll try to get one in the mail to you after New Years.  I really won't have time to get one out til then though. I would accept one of your 9mm in exchange.

    Snap Cap exchange, cool idea! I have 2 9mm AZoom (not new have been cycled thru a PF-9 a few times but fine)
    and 1 12G AZoom (has been cycled only twice). I would like trade for 40SW and 45ACP. This could be a sticky in the
    Trading Post! Thanks!

    If the 12ga hasn't been taken, I would sure like to get my hands on it! Oh, miss read your post, thought you were looking for a 9mm or two. Sorry, don't have anything I can offer you at this point.
