Hardness of cerrosafe Alloy?

I want to make some dummy rounds for dry firing. I was thinking of pouring Cerrosafe in the primer pocket to make my own A-Z00M snap caps for dry firing. A-ZOOM doesn't make them for my 270 WSM, 375 RUM. They don't even make them for Allen uber mags [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Hardness of cerrosafe Alloy?

it will chip and flake from what i have seen -- not a good idea [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

just dry fire the bastage! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Or if you are worried, use a fired case with the dead primer still in...

Re: Hardness of cerrosafe Alloy?

bigbore,
I too cringe when I dry fire without something under the firing pin mainly cause I don't want to have to send it off to be repaired cause then I could'nt be shooting [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
jb suggested one of the things I do ,that is use a fired round, y7ou will see that the pin still makes contact with the primer , at least a couple of times more.
Wonder if a guy could take a 270 std azoom snap cap and marry it to (the operating end) one of your fired cases.Should'nt be too hard.
Jim

If you must have something, a primer pocket full of silicone works pretty good.

A pencil eraser will also work.
