(7 customer reviews)


Set of five 8mm Mauser (8×57) dummy rounds or “snap caps” with replica WWI cupro-nickel bullets on a stripper clip.

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.


Set of five 8mm Mauser (8×57) dummy rounds / snap caps / fake bullets with replica WWI cupro-nickel projectiles in a K98 Mauser stripper clip.  This cartridge was the standard rifle cartridge of the German military from 1898 until the end of the Second World War.  It’s effectiveness was world renown and was used by many other nations, including Great Britain.  The US military used it and its counterpart, the Gewehr 98 Mauser, as the basis for the 30-06 Springfield cartridge and 1903 Springfield rifle.  The 8mm Mauser was used in the Gew 98, K98, MG34, MG42, FG42, M48, and many others.

These are the most historically accurate dummy rounds available in the world!

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

Great for safely function checking, as an addition to your re-enactment kit, or display with your fine piece of military history.

Thanks for looking!

    These guys put out one of the best snap caps I’ve ever used. There are zero feed or ejection issues. I haven’t noticed any damage to my chamber or any internal parts.

    Very nice dummy rounds. Very good product. I asked for spent primers and was delivered rubber inserts which is no big deal just making sure y’all know.

    These are all well made inert cartridges. I was worried about the bullet being pushed back into the casing mouth after several cycling’s, but the bullets aren’t budging after dozens of dry firing. And the rubber disc in the primer pocket is holding very well. (And that’s the only way to distinguish these from live rounds) I’m EXTREMELY impressed by these!
