    I don't use snap caps, but I have heard of guys trimming pencil erasers so that they just fit into the primer pocket. That seems like it would work well.

        I tried some pencil eraser and it seems to hold up well. Another source for material is the backing on an old mouse pad I have. Really a tough rubber like backing that should hold up well.

          I haven't tried making my own. However, I've gotten in the habit of using snap caps as the last round in my tube fed .22's ... that way I'm never popping the firing pin onto the edge of an empty chamber.

            There are several books on a bookshelf.
            If one book is fourth from the left and sixth from the right, how many books are on the shelf?
