How movie guns work

A question arose in my head today about how semi-automatic and automatic guns in the movies work, in particular where you can see expent shell casings. In order for them to be using blanks, they have to have the BFA (blank firing attatchment) to cycle the gas backwards to the bolt, and you never see those in the movies. If it's not blanks they are shooting what could it be? I don't think they would be firing real rounds on a movie set but that is all I can think of that makes sense. :???:
