Now you’ve got me needing one... lol
The 50 rd plastic boxes that the CCI Stingers come in are also handy to carry some rounds in. Ive about worn mine out, does anyone have a few theyd sell?
For general shooting, parmesan cheese containers, the clear ones with green top, work really well. The pop top allows you to dump some out without taking the lid off or dumping them on the ground accidentally. I dump a bulk carton into the parmesan container for in the vehicle or just shooting in the yard. They are great for screws and hardware also. When they get hard to see through, they get replaced with fresh ones.
Marbles Catch .22 on sale for $5.99 each at Midway.
The USGI M13 Decon kit container works well for carrying bulk loose 22RF rounds.
The old leather US Field Dressing First Aid case belt pouch will snuggly hold three of the 50-round pasteboard boxes of 22LR .
I just use an old foam lined eyeglass case. There are many designs to choose from.
small Altoids tin
Put some Goo-Gone into a small spray bottle and spray it liberally on the edges of any sticker. Let it sit for a few hours, or better yet, overnight. Then the sticker then just lifts off, no hassle.
altoids tin or 35mm film canister
Often I just dump some in my shirt pocket.
I used to shoot a lot of birds with my .22lr 10/22 heavy barrel Target and my 10/77. A lot (since I was tasked/volunteered to decimate vast numbers of rooks). Just carried extra boxes of ammo in a pocket and had a brick in the trunk of the car.
On a sidenote; all birds went to someone, who ate them. I never partook myself.
Those speed strips and the MTM box looks nice though. Id buy those, were I to carry some spare rounds today.
I use these.
Tandemkross made a neat holder that looked like a picatinny rail.
Tic tac container... peel of label....holds quite a bit
I use some thin foam and the CCI plastic boxes.
Box is reusable and the foam is recycled from packaging - silent in your pack or pocket, and dispenses 5 rounds at a time.
Coin purse (for small amount) tobacco pouch (larger amount).
I normally carry them in a snuff can with either a cotton pad on top and bottom or a couple cotton balls in to stop rattling.
I often dump the contents of bulk pack boxes into 8oz parmesan cheese bottles. I remove the cheese and label first, of course. And I realize I'm admitting to the world that we are "those people" who buy grated parm instead of the good stuff.
Now I see that Federal had the same idea and is selling WMR in an 8 oz plastic bottle.
I have 2 catch-22's and 2 MTM ammo wallets. I carry different 22's in each.
Old metal diabetic test strip tube that has self sealing cap with desiccant in it.
My 10/22 magazines fit in a .38 speedloader pouch. I also sometimes carry it in the watch pocket of my jeans. I drill a hole in the stock underneath the buttplate to fit a small cotton plug along with 3 .22 rounds.
Challenge coin bags are great for loose .22s.
For my Marlin Model 60 I use a couple of aluminum arrow shafts cut to hold 10 rounds of .22lr and four that hold 5 rounds. The 5 round ones ride in my woods bag and if I am carrying a pack I will take the 10 round one. I mainly use the 10 round ones at the range. Extra rounds are carried in an Altoids tin.
The most compact would be the box they come in...? Drop one or two boxes in a Ziploc. It keeps rounds contained if a box opens and gives a storage bag for empty casings. It also gives a place to dump the shells to more easily stuff a mag.
I have plenty of mags for my semiautos so this applies mostly to single shot and revolvers, or if I expect to shoot a lot.
I do have a Catch-22 which is currently in my AR-7 survival bag but I think I'll pair it with my Bearcat. Five rounds per, just right for an old school revolver.
I also picked up an MTM wallet to go with my .22 singles but haven't used it. It makes a lot of sense for single shots and for multiple types of rounds.
Until recently I would just have a box of shells in a jacket pocket and a few loose rounds in a pants pocket. That's worked fine for almost 50 years... just like carrying a box of shells in a sandwich bag.
From the "I ain't fancy" department: for years I made and carried little paper packets folded and stapled to hold 5 .22 LR rounds. Carried in my pants watch pocket to give a reload or two for my NAA mini. Finally stopped making them when I got a pocket holster that holds spare rounds.
The clear plastic jars powerbait comes in work well for 22s. That and leather pouches.
How does “where you carry 22’s” last three pages and 13 MONTHS???
Its a popular topic!
Well, I just had a lot of popcorn in the pantry and several 2 liter diet cokes setting around, soooooo I just kinda kept ridin along. Wernt too bumpy of a ride and it kept me out of trouble, except for the 2 catch 22's and 4 MTM ammo wallets I ordered, when my wife finds out. TDP
For bulk I use a coffee creamer container that has a flip top.
It's interesting to see how different people solve the same problem.
I have a bunch of Catch-22's and MTM Ammo Wallets - I use a Catch-22 for CCI "Quiets" that have been SGB'd and another for CCI SV, I reserve the Ammo Wallets for the WMR, and speed strips for anything non-standard (Colibri's, etc)...
I thought I replied to this, but I don't see it. Extra mags, or loose in velvet bags that challenge coins come in. Nice and quiet.
I carry spare 22lr in an empty Swedish Snus can. An all-plastic one, not cardboard.
I have a leather pouch with a single snap at the top and a piece of flat spring steel across the top edges. You just bump the snap like a thumb break holster and it opens up about 3 inches.
Holds about 75 22LR. I also have a couple black nylon pouches with velcro about the same size, but not as rigid.
I don't like to carry loose rounds in pants pockets - too easy to drop a round on the ground. One time while mowing the yard, I heard a small muffled bang right in the area where I did most of my shooting. No harm done, but unsettling to have happen right at your feet.
I use an altoids tin lined with a piece of suede to keep it from rattling too much
Plastic peanut butter jar
Thats what I keep all My cast boolits in!!
Handful in the pocket of my jacket or vest
