I strongly advise using some sort of snap cap or other buffer device to keep the firing pin from contacting the edge of the chamber when you're dry-firing a rimfire, especially when you're doing hundreds of repetitions. Otherwise you risk peening the edge of the chamber, which can cause problems with extraction.
