I bought Mossberg 940 and would like to practice dual loading. Question: I was thinking about practicing loading with dummy rounds. Pros and cons would be appreciated.

I’ve practiced dual loading with live buckshot, I just don’t pull the trigger when I am doing that at home. If the safety doesn’t inhibit loading, seems rather simple and straight forward.

I always practice with dummy rounds at home. Bought some dummy shot shell rounds my 12 gauge shotgun and also bought some dummy rounds for my AR as well.

No cons at all. Only pros.

Practice as much as you can and use dummies any time you don't intend to shoot. That's what they're made for. I like AZoom snap caps because they have a little rubber bumpers to make dry firing any weapon safe. They're also nicely weighted. This would allow you to practice the complete cycle of loading, shooting, and ejecting safely and quietly.

I make a point of having snap caps/dummies for every caliber I own, for exactly this reason.
