The action proving dummy is more or less a conventional shotgun hull which is loaded with a standard wad and lead charge, to give the exact weight feel and replicate a normal field/target load. However they are lacking powder charge and primer, and are hence inert.
They are intended for training use and would be ideal for anyone wishing to practise their technique for reloading, cycling, any type of 12g shotgun. They are not intended for dry firing. But in terms of offering a safe alternative for live ammunition for practise off range, they give a much more realistic feel and effect than any snap cap.
Suits people training for western action, training cycling for speed on lever action shotguns and pump action shotguns. Also act as an action proving round for all types of 12 gauge shotguns.
