That particular cartridge seemed to serve the British Empire very well.  Funny how reputation can be earned over decades of faithful service.

It's still a good cartridge, even if a little hard to find in some locations, I still kick myself for letting go of my no 4 mk 1 Long Branch which for some reason was parkerized instead of enameled.

Back on topic: most guns except possibly rimfires are ok, I've seen several rimfires with peened chamber edges and cracked/ chipped firing pins, but a couple snap caps are cheap piece of mind and useful for more than just dry firing.

We dry fired the hell out of our M16A2s in the army with no apparent damage, but I always use snap caps in my precision rifles.
