Questions & Answers

Currently, I have two shotguns that I would like to train with. There are two shell sizes, one takes a 2 3/4" shell and the other Could you confirm if these work for both shotguns? Thanks for getting back to me. ?

The crimped size of a 3-inch shell is about 2 inches In case your shotgun can use 3" shells, you can use the 2-inch rounds as well The shells fit in 3" shells without any problems.

Does drilling not require dry fire? This isn't a normal part of a drill, is it?

Additionally, it is a good opportunity to practice loading, reloading, and firing dry rounds.

Surely these are not suitable for dry firing since the pin will not make contact with ?

Shotgun firing pins are a lot more substantial than rifle firing pins. Shotgun people don't have to worry about the action or pin getting damaged when they dry fire. The loading, firing, ejecting and reloading of a pump shotgun is a good drill that you can do if you own one. For these types of training drills, these dummy rounds work well. I hope you have a great time.

Is it easy for them to cycle and eat? Can they withstand the test of time? I want to put two of them side by side on my side by side to relieve stress from the firing pins. ?

I'm very pleased with the way they cycle and feed! While I haven't owned them that long, I imagine the brass will hold up quite well over time. The brass part of the shell gets the most wear, and since it is brass, I think it will hold up for quite a while. My opinion is that it is a well-made product.

Selected User Reviews For St Action Pro 12GA Gauge Shotgun Safety Trainer Cartridge Dummy Shell Rounds with Brass Case, Orange, 10 Pack

The fit is great and the results are good
3/5

This is not a very durable material. The pros are Please note - It is precisely sized for a 12 Gauge chamber. Please note - During dry firing, the primer is rubberized to protect the firing pin. Please note - It is a good idea to practice shotgun mechanics with dummy rounds. The cons are Please note - It feels a bit cheap and gets ruined really easily due to the brass material. Please note - This shell is a tad shorter than the 2 3/4" shell. Please note - You wouldn't have the opportunity to practice loading well with such a light weight. Please note - Too many jams are played there. Please note EDIT Having actually packed them with #8 shot and sealed the top with hot glue seems to have solved my jamming issue and made them heavier for loading practice.

Bottom Line Good set of practice dummy rounds or dry firing practice.

Trying to return this junk as soon as possible
3/5

As a result, I am sorry - I should have reviewed the description carefully, or at least some of the reviews provided by others in the field. However, the shorts are too short and the light weight is too great. As you can't get an accurate grip on two shells, this is useless for loading practice. An 8x shell carrier does not fit them correctly. I can hardly feel the leading edge of two of these in my hand, so if you push them forward with your thumb, which is supposed to be the leading edge, there is no leading edge at all at all. There is no point in quads because they slip all over the place. It is impossible to dry fire a pump shotgun. In addition, you may be learning how to short-cycle your pump shotgun if you do not plan on shooting 1 3/4" shells (or maybe you can The size is real and the weight is close enough.

Dummy shells that measure 2 1/2 inches will get stuck in Mossberg shotguns
3/5

The 2 1/2 inch shells will hang up in the elevators in Mossberg shotguns. A couple of my Mossbergs were jammed in. It is important to cap or solidify the elevator shells so that they do not hang on the middle "finger" There is a jam in the elevator middle finger when it goes right down the empty shell. It may also be a difference if the width is only 2 1/2 inch rather than 2 2/3 or 3 inches. While this may work well for shotguns made by other manufacturers without Mossberg type elevators, it does not work well for Mossberg shotguns.

This gun works flawlessly and YES, it can be used for dry firing practice
5/5

Both works just as intended and YES, it can be used for dry firing practice (which shouldn't normally be a problem). It is possible to see the firing pin indents being created on the dummy round as soon as you fire it. I was told by an "amazon customer" that these are not for dry firing, but that statement is untrue. I may update if the durability is a concern in the future.

The Updated Review is as follows I was unable to determine the length of the document Then I took a chance
4/5

The update is Jeremy, I'm still learning how to use my shotgun as a new owner (07/23/20). It was recently explained to me that "2 3/4" shells are approximately that length after they have been fired, Two and a half inch shells are typically two and a quarter inches before use. It turns out I made a mistake in my earlier review regarding length. As well, another important factor when selecting dummy rounds is the thickness of the brass/metal, which can sometimes cause issues, mainly with newly manufactured semi-automatics. Those snap caps look like they will fit in my shotgun. I hope these shells will do the job. If I see too much flaking, I will move on to a new dummy round. I will also watch how much the brass and plastic flake off during loading, maybe doing a dry fire. Please note - The dummy loads that were used were only 2 1/4" in size, when I needed 2 3/4". It was noted in some reviews (perhaps for a similar product from the same seller) that the load is 2 3/4". In a few questions about length, a buyer was mentioned as receiving loads with a 2 3/4" diameter. Taking a chance seemed like the sensible thing to do. I don't think so. It measures I will not be able to use these. In order to verify this claim, I reordered the same item from the same Seller that others claimed had been received in 2 3/4". The description of this item could have mentioned 2 1/4" in small print, but I didn't notice it as have other people. You may want to include the length and weight of each item in a bullet item right at the top of the listing. Apart from that, I think these Dummy Loads are pretty good. Having never used them, I won't be able to tell how long they will last.

I liked this one because it offers the best bang for the At first I was a little skeptical about these, but apart from the weight they are perfect to match The dry-cleaning industry About 150 shots have been fired and loaded and unloaded so far on a 12-gauge Several gauges of semi-rigid The shotgun is an automatic weapon
5/5

My experience has been excellent and I haven't seen any breakdowns from the pistols. And they also work great for dry firing and practicing It is certainly easy for you to tell them apart from the red shotgun shells, but I advise you not to even keep them near live ammunition. You should be careful when practicing and enjoy them if you.

The primers work well and protect your firing pin against dry fire
5/5

However, some people claimed that the primers had problems loading and ejecting fully in their guns. For the record, I have a Stoeger p3500 pump and I don't have any problems with it. Even one guy said he filled his with BBs and glued the cap on with hot glue. However, I do not think you need additional features if you have a Stoeger P3500. I hope this is helpful for others who want to give it a try. This is a good weapon at a low price, but it's likely to become more expensive someday. It may have something to do with my ability to work well with them. The Beretta is a great shotgun if you have a lot of spare cash and do not mind spending $1900. If you are looking for a high-quality Beretta at $350/$400, though, you might want to check out Stoeger (a Beretta sibling company).

You will need all the necessary materials for training with 12 gauge For what they are, this is a great deal
5/5

These videos have helped a newbie who just got his first shotgun to get used to loading, unloading and understanding how the 12 gauge works. I filled in an opening in the top of the dummy shell with small machine screws and sealed it with a small amount of gorilla tape to give it a more realistic look. We are now looking at a 2 3/4 inch shell with similar weight. This month, I've done a lot of drills around the house with them and they're holding up You should be able to use these for quite a while if you don't throw them on concrete. And, at this price, you won't have to break the bank to purchase more, like expensive snap caps. It has made me happy to see these.
