Our shell holders are cut from precise patterns and held to high manufacturing standards. However, due to thickness, density & flexibility differences in natural leather, some break-in is required with several of our shell holder models.

2 to 3 days should be sufficient to break-in your leather loops. It’s also a good idea to wear the shell holders on your belt, prior to your hunt, as they will also conform to your waist.

C-1 “wallet” style holders should be filled with your ammo immediately and given time to conform to same.

C-2 leather loop holders should also be filled upon delivery so that the loops will mold to your cartridges. A light coat of petroleum jelly can be applied to the cartridges, if they are difficult to insert for the first time.

C-8 cartridge belt w/leather loops. The above applies and if the new belt can be worn prior to field use -all the better.

We do not recommend mixing calibers with our Leather Loop Shell Holders, so that a balance of access/retention of your ammo can be assured.

Elastic loop versions C-2, C-8, and Models C-3, & C-3CRP do NOT require any break-in and can accommodate a range of cartridges based on their intended size design. While the C-3B is made with Leather Loops, it does not have to be dedicated to a specific cartridge or caliber, as it has a flap for retention and the loops are roomier.

Dick,
I just received the C-1 shell holders the other day
and they are outstanding. A very practical design
and well made using high quality materials. I took
your advice and put the shells in them so they will
form fit before our hunt.

Thanks again,
J.V., Macomb, MI

Dick,
I have three main hunting rifles and your quality butt stock shell holder is on all of them. Thought you might like to see my trusty and ever faithful 30-06 with the shell holder on it when I took my SCI record Coastal Island Black Bear on June 3, 2007.

Your products not only look good, but and most importantly, are completely functional. I recommend them to all my friends.

Sincerely,
A.W., Westcliffe, CO

Hello Dick,
Enclosed is a picture of nice Alberta whitetail. Thank You for making a quality shell holder. Up in the North Country sound travels. Your shell holders keep the cartridges rattle free and protect them. You have to keep your noise to a minimum up in that big bush country. And they are made in the Good Old U.S.A.

Thanks, M.F.
