    carrying ammunition in a stock sleeve

    i have been asked to make a leather lace up one of these as the customer wants to put it over a comb raiser. How many or you lads carry ammunition stock sleeve what are the pit falls of these i have never used one just wondered what you think would make the best improvements to it

    Pit falls? Not yet convinced that they work 100%. I once lost a few rounds when having the rifle and a deer over the shoulder going back to the car. Also they often tend to rotate and bring the ammo in an awkward position. My last quibble would be how wet the ammo gets when it rains which is very often here.
    I like them on my foxing rifle, mostly because we'd be in more civilised terrain.

    i think the is why he wants a leather one to stop the rotation

    just one more question how many slots would you like considering you have 3 to 5 rounds in the mag how many slots would you like on the sleeve?

    Really must get in touch with you and order a couple of slings and cartridge pouches Ash.

    I think cartridge loops on a sling and stock look naff. For all we carry around it's easy enough to keep them in a pocket or a belt pouch.

    Whenever I see someone with one of those 'sniper' cheekpieces with the bullet loops or a sling with loops crammed with rounds and a massive twiddly nobs scope the alarm bells start ringing - just my view. I know some of the big scopes do sometimes need some kind of extra cheekpiece though.

    If you use the Uncle Mikes neoprene one you will not loose any ammo out of the loops.

    They become almost a necessity in my view if you have a floor plate mag and as I do cull a lot of fallow. If you have a DM then fine and you can swap mags very quickly.

    I always carry spare rounds in a bespoke bullet box (TVM Ash ). My concern with butt mounted spares would be with the potential for loss or damage. I would be hugely embarrassed if a farmer found a live round, that I had lost, on his ground. "Winning the firefight" with a herd of Fallow wasn't a competency requirement for the DSC2 so I cant comment on their benefit in a rapid reload situation.

    I have a BearTooth neoprene comb raiser on one of my rifles and it is perfectly stable - although I've never had to butt stroke a charging Fallow with it.

    Hi Ash

    Ive got one on my pro hunter..

    Its an elasticated type and never lost a bullet yet..

    When pulling it over the stock i made a small nick and use the sling fixing point to anchor it which stops it from rotating..

    I recon five slots would be fine..

    See you soon mate
