Snap caps are dummy rounds, sometimes with spring loaded primer sections. These are used so that the firing pin has something to hit. Most centerfire weapons can be dry fired without any problem, not the case with many rimfire pistols and rifles. Dryfiring these can cause firing pin damage. Most manufacturers will specify whether dryfiring will cause harm.
