30-06 M1 Garand Enbloc – Dummy Rounds Snap Caps

(71 customer reviews)


Set of eight 30-06 dummy rounds / snap caps / “fake bullets” in an M1 Garand enbloc.  Perfect for safely function checking or dry-fire training.

Cartridge Options Explained

With this option steel BB’s (ball bearings) are added to the cartridges. This makes them rattle when shaken, aiding in identification as inert, snap caps.

Cartridges all patina darkened to aid in identification.


M1 Garand 30-06 dummy rounds, snap caps, or fake bullets in an M1 enbloc.  Prefect for safely function checking, dry-fire training, as an addition to your re-enactment kit, or display with your fine piece of military history.  This set of eight .30 cal dummy rounds are made from real brass and real bullets, but are completely inert (no powder or live primers).

Check out our short videos on how to load the M1, and start practicing SAFELY with our dummy rounds.

Great for “ball and dummy” drills too.  While at the range (and ONLY at a shooting range), mix one of these 30-06 Springfield snap caps into the enbloc and see if you, or your student, has a flinch.  It also forces you to learn how to properly clear a jammed or misfired cartridge.

Available with spent primers remaining, empty primer pockets, holes drilled in the cases, or rubber inserts added to the primer pockets.

Thanks for looking!

    Perfect “snap caps” to teach my sons how to load the old M1 Garand…..I got the added “rattle” to help them make sure these are not live rounds,….. highly recommend!!

  7. Anthony (verified owner)

    Ordered for troubleshooting, didn’t want to chamber real rounds for what I was doing. Worked like a charm, same dimensions as a real .30-06 round. Chambered and extracted seamlessly. Fit in my En Bloc clips without issues as well. Good find

    need to remind myself not to get painted rounds if i plan to load them into weapon. had an M-16 flashback moment. think i was more confused cause my Garand has never ever jammed before. maybe just painted tips would work better. worked great once i scraped all the paint off the brass.

    The look, function, and use of these are rounds are invaluable. With the M1 these are perfect for becoming comfortable with the safe operation of the rifle.

    For me though I wished that the holes in case were drilled above the enbloc clip for more rapid identification as dummy rounds, but that’s just an opinion, and we all know the saying!
