Ideal pouch for loose rounds?

Wasn't too sure where to post this, but I figured for you handloaders out there this'd be a decent enough place.

So, the question is; what's a good, hard, pouch for holding loose .68's in (I'm not particularly thinking FS, unless that would prove a simpler solution - like the dukie pez dispenser).

For those curious, I was going to have a little fun and experiment with a slingshot I found. Well...that and I simply love handloading my nellie.

Get an old metal canteen cut the top off so the hole is large enough for your hand and get a flap or elastic cover for the top.

Personally I'd recommend a few 'Uncle Mike's 22 Ammo Carriers'



If you seperate into a few smaller pouches then a smash won't leave you ammoless.

That's what I use with my sling.

They run $15 or so.

Sound advice guys, thanks, both options sound pretty good!
I'd been using one of these for my 3357's .50's, but it just wasn't suitable for .68's:


It holds a good few, but I'm pessimistic about how many rounds I'll be needing out there for once!
How do you find using the sling AgentSmith?

This is the pouch I'm looking at for use with my SR1. Holds loose rounds and the top is covered with two overlapping pieces of elastic. Everything stays put, and you don't have to fight with velcro or zippers. Just stick your hand up in there and grab 'em!

Shotgun ammo pouch

I've been using a McCann dump pouch it works just like that shotgun ammo pouch you linked dm6rocker. The only problem I've run into is when I drop to prone I tend to smash the rounds.

Wolfman, I was experimenting with my diy tube holder belt. I can get 2 68 cal paintballs to sit in each loop. Downside is although secure they are not very protected unless you wear it bandoleer style. Also your limited in capacity. I would recommend a large dump pouch(not foldable) with compartments from foam? Thats what I'm planning. Always wanted to try a slingshot in paintball.

Well I'm certainly not ruling out any options right now.
Although I've found that my .50s seem to be flying better, so my case-gard or AgentSmith's .22 pouch might be the way to go afterall. Only time will tell!

Aha! BELT MOUNTED SECURE PERFECTION!



WAY less MCarterBrown, but still effective:





The sling works great:



The paintsling works like a flyrod, the heavy stiff lacing lets you get it up to speed quickly. The synthetic snowshoe webbing is the key.

Oddly enough I dug it out of the bottom of my trunk 2 weeks ago, I haven't used it in a long time. Even all crumpled, with the pocket stiff and dried out, Tinman was able to get a 30' break.
I gave it a little love, we'll see how it flangs 'em next time!

Agent Smith, I think your sling is probably a little too "hardcore" for us amateurs!
