    You will have to manually cycle the slide after each shot, and effective range isn't very far. This article over at The Box 'O Truth might be of some use to you...

    I wasted my money on a box of these, cool in theory... But bad for simi-autos... It did look cool on the target though... I would not recommend for a couple reasons... They were REALLY dirty rounds, lots of fouling all over my gun, me and anything within a couple feet. Also, as we said by Syntax, the range is not good, from more than a few feet it spread out so much that it was worthless. But it is fun. LOL. :) Hope this info helps. Also, like Syntax said, you will have to cycle each and every round, it doesn't have enough blowback to eject the round, and I found they stuck sometimes...

    I have only shot it in .38 Special, but not very useful.

    Just for the record - they definitely do not cycle in M9A1s...
