    Gday guys,

    I've been looking for a belt ammo pouch that holds 5 to 10 rounds for my 275 rigby. Given the type of mountain hunting i do I'm thinking of going with one that has a closing top, though I'd consider anything. Definitely want leather, might yet get initials engraved though I don't want to feel too pretentious.

    Struggling to find anything that fits the bill, anyone know of any brands or makers?

    Also going to get my wife to buy me a nice canvas sling for christmas, any suggestions on that would be great.

    Cheers,

    JP I have the Galco for my 375 H&H and it has worked very well. I keep softs on top and solids down lower. Fast to use and so far very secure.

    This is Jim from African Sporting Creations and we carry the Galco (too big) and a full range of Els and Co products. I would look at the Somerset Covered as it carries the rounds you want and is avail in sizes to fit everything from a .243 to a .500

    Call us at 419 529 5599 if you have any questions and have a good day.

    Jim

    We had these leather belts developed for our European hunters.
    The exact bullet pouch size is Small European as the 275 is 7x57 Mauser.
    Shipping to Australia is no problem.

    I use this Els an Co. pouch for my .375. It is extremely well made and works perfectly.

    Els, Murray, or Galco. Can't go wrong. I use a Murray cartridge belt for Africa (.375), and will be taking an Els belt pouch (.270) with me to British Columbia next week.

    I use Murray for the Ammo slides as well. Check out Trader Keith’s for the canvas sling. They’re top drawer. He also has exceptional quality sling swivels.

    image.jpg Murray makes great stuff and they’re the only company I’ve found that makes a standard and short height pouch. Their short is perfect for 308/275/6.5. Loop width is the same but the shorter height keeps the cartridges in place better than the taller standard which is sized for 30-06/270 etc. Other companies seem to make a “one size fits all” pouch. I couldn’t find the short version listed, you have to ask for it when ordering. They’ll add initials etc for a couple bucks. My standard Christmas present to hunting buddies. 6.5 CM pictured in the short, 30-06 in the taller standard

    Cheers guys, I've heard back from both, gunna run at around $200 aud to my door either direction, reckon ill get the missus to buy it for my chrissy present.

    Els look nicer I think but because i hunt in some tough terrain and knock my gear a lot having a push button like murray offers is probably more practical.

    Els seem to make some lovely canvas slings also.

    Thanks all for the advice, she's all starting to come together.

    For any others in the future. I got the Murray C2 Leather and it holds my 300 weatherby shells snug. Not so snug that I struggle to get them out but they won't be falling out or easily knocked out. Quality is excellent and should last a long time.
    Next time I think I'd do a cover but I really like the individual pockets for the shells. Just thought I'd share.

    Don’t forget to check out trader Keith’s for the sling. His canvas slings are top drawer.

    Dick Murray, Murray custom leather. He will be at DSC as always and does great work. Give him a call and you will really enjoy working with him. He will have exactly what you want.
