I had an concept for a custom cartridge pouch and from my drawings and explanations Daniel Thor at Thor’s Hammer Custom Leather made it come true, even improving on my ideas and added features. This pouch is hand sewn and not done by machine. This pouch is for 458 Lott but also fits 45-110 and even 45-70. I wanted a pouch that fully protected the rounds. It is two tier with solids on the bottom tier and soft points on the upper tier. The soft point tips are protected from deformation by cutout for the nose of the bullets. I chose 5 rounds per tier because it kept the overall width of the pouch down, used half a box of commercial ammo, but also would fill my CZ 550 magazine. The spacing is designed to ease the grabbing of a round when under stress, allow a finger between the rounds when grabbing two round at the same time (for a future double rife if fortune smiles upon me) and if wearing gloves. A feature of the pouch allows replacement of the cartridge loop panels without having to replace the pouch. The panels would not come out no matter how hard or fast I pulled the cartridges so I have no worry about them coming out at the wrong time. The pouch is silent and there is no clinking of brass or metal when walking or pulling a round. The belt loops are as low as possible to keep from having the pouch dig into your thigh when sitting. The drain holes are grommets and are in-between the rounds. What do you think and do you see any features that experience says would be good to have?
