Carrying a little shot.
« on: May 20, 2019, 11:03:34 PM »
I shoot some smoothbore matches, Woodswalks .

I was wondering if anyone made themselves a shot Box Or "Can"?

We shoot 4 clay birds at the last station and I just need enough #8 shot for that station one Fellow( I havn't seen Him since) had  a small Box that is wood about the size of a deck of Cards maybe a little smaller (I Didn't get to Hold IT)  but thin about 3/8 thick I Saw him pour from that into his powder measure Twice in his case, and into the Muzzle.

Its not that big of Deal BUTT on the course you must carry a Throwing Knife , A Throwing Hawk . Your Fire Starting Kit , Flint and Steel. along with all the stuff to shoot 15 shots for Patch and Ball. and 4 Birds.

Just looking to Go lite especially in hot weather.

The Jack Daniels sounds good but the bottle is glass. I use empty 5 hour energy drink bottles for both shot and round ball, up to .40.

This is what I carry. Welted, brain tanned bag with horn spout. The plug is fitted horn with the measures inside. This one is 8.5 inches long, but could be made smaller of course. It's full of #4.

Some place here on the forum, I saw a guy using an old medicine bottle of some sort for a shot carrier.  The bottle looked like something from the mid-1800's.

Here's what I prefer. A doubled ended springed shot charger.
3 or 4 of these in the pocket work quite well for a hunt or a walk with minimal shots.

Using a couple sizes of pvc, I made a bunch of small ball and shot carriers.  It works out great; I just choose the sizes I'll need for the day.  Also mady a shot carrier from a piece of bamboo.  Can't fill it anywhere close to full or it'll weigh 10 lbs.

I think I might make a shot pouch like the one James Rogers shown.

ORR I might get crazy and do a tiny box thing that fits in a shirt pocket.
