    An nice, classic Belt, for my amunition (9,3 x 62).

    I search in the internet and found this product:

    What do you think?
    What do you use?

    Best wishes from Germany (we had the first snow here in this year in Frankfurt).

    Bullhunter,

    There are several good sources for ammo and culling belts. I don't know anything about the specific one you have linked but it looks nice.

    Here are couple of other sources but they may beyond your targeted budget:

    Default Ammo/Culling belt

    I have been looking high and low for the belt that is on the front cover of Craig Boddington's book, Safari Rifles II. You can bearly see it, but I have found nothing like it on the web. Anyone else seen it?

    Bullhunter,
    The kkk one is of good quality, A friend uses one for 7x64 rounds so it should stretch to suit the 9.3x62.
    Have a look at ones from "trader Keith" and "Galco".
    Galco's 30/06 size, 10round "Stalker" is what I have found ideal for the 9.3x62.

    I don't know if you have access to Cabela's. I bought a 10 round belt holster for my 416 Rigby and it works just great.

    Give them a try

    Bullhunter,

    Your best bet would be to find a local, or not so local, leathersmith to build one, custom fit for the calibre you desire. It may cost a little more, but, you will use it for a lifetime. Any leatherman worth his salt can bulid it for you at a reasonable cost. You won't be sorry spending the extra money for it.

    Just make sure you don't leave your rounds for long in a 100 percent leather belt as they will foul with Verdigris. You need to take them out each night and wipe them. For me though, the synthetic materials while probably superior just don't 'look right'.
    Time spent in Reconnaisance is never wasted.

    I like the products from Murray Custom Leather. They have a really nice ammo belt that can be ordered in different versions.

    After years of trying this belt and that belt..I finally decided all belts need to be nylon and the loops need to be the streach nylon and sewed shut at the bottom and only a quarter of an inch exposed at the top..Your ammo will not yuk up like it will with leather in humid areas or get stiff in dry or wet weather. It won't slip out the bottom or work its way out the top. It won't pull the belt up when you need to reload in a hurry..All these things I learned the hard way, by experience..

    My favorite belt is two Cabellas black cartridge belts sewed together lengthwise and the bottom sewed shut..I have probably $10 invested..If anyone wants to see one then email me at ray@atkinsonhunting.com and I'll send you a picture and you can have your local saddle shop or shoe repairman fix it up for a couple of bucks.

    The one linked looks good. I am familiar with Mulholland Brothers

    Mulholland Brothers Cartridge Belt - Ten-Round - Save 76%

    They use top grain leather and double stitching, usually pricey, but found this one for a pretty reasonable price- $39.95 US SIERRA TRADING POST reputable company here.

    I moved away from ammo belts and started using the pouches supplied by Murray Custom Leather. They are more comfortable and versatile. You can order them cartridge specific so the rounds fit like my .500 x 3-1/4" for instance. When hunting DG I carry two one on the left with softs and one on the rite with solids. It may not be for everyone but the system works very well for me.

    I feel Texas hunt co might be selling one of the better belts for practical use.

    I have bought the PH belt from Texas Hunt co for my trip to Zim. I have already used it when hunting here in Australia. Seem comfy enough, the actual cartrige holders don't seem to mind what sort of ammo you put in them. I have used it with 30-06, 338WM, 375H&H, 416 Ruger and have had to problems with rounds slipping out.
