    Snap Caps - Aluminium vs Plastic

    My LGS carries both Aluminium Snap Caps (~$15 for 5) and Orange Plastic Snap Caps (~$3 for 10) ...

    Does anyone have any experience with plastic snap caps? Am I going to wear the palstic ones out so fast that I'll end up spending more in the long run ??

    I've used both.
    The plastic ones break after some amount of use.
    The aluminum ones don't.

    I no longer buy the plastic ones. They don't last long enough.

    Thansk for the insight... I thought that might be the case, but figured $12 is a box of ammo, so it doesn't cost anything to ask!

    Aluminum over plastic. The A-Zoom brand is the best I have found.

    I've only used the A-zoom ones. I can't help but think the plastic ones will eventually break after racking them during practice.
