Buttstock Shellholder for .22 LR?

I'm looking for a way to carry extra 22 LR ammo when I'm poking around in the woods around the house. The rifle is a Savage 24 22/410. I usually just carry them in my shirt or pants pocket, but after a while, I end up with a pile of really clean 22 ammo (after they go through the washer and dryer) on top of the clothes dryer.
I'd like to have either the buttstock type or even a sling with loops for 22 shells, but can't find either. Anyone ever see these?

Might try something like this:

Or possibly a normal cheekrest with a pouch and you can keep the ammo in there?

Yeesh! .22 floating around in the dryer? That sounds scary lol

You might have to make one. Never seen one and .22lr seems kinda dinky to put in an elastic loop.

I know it's not what you were asking about, but I have always kept my "walking around" .22 stash in a pill bottle or 35mm film canister in my pocket. Kind of hard to accidentally wash them that way.

Saw this idea on another forum, pill bottles in 10 gauge shotgun shell holders. Then again, having pill bottles strapped to a gun looks kinda strange and might get you the wrong kind of attention lol.

I don't think anybody makes a buttstock holder for .22LR. I personally would find it more vexing than helpful... :D

I keep my old spice bottles for this purpose. Mrs. Dash, garlic powder, etc. Fill the empties about 2/3 full with water, close the lid, shake vigorously. Pour out the water and let air-dry.



You can get about 80 rounds in a Mrs. Dash bottle, or about 110 rounds in a Harris Teeter half-pint oyster container.

I have carried a Beeman Pellet pouch on my belt for years when out donking around the woods. Mine is tan leather. They have not made them in tan for years.

If you can still find them somewhere.

Brass case ammo in a leather loop shell holder will turn crusty slimey green in no time flat.

You don't want that to happen do you? :D

Those pellet pouches look handy! I'll have to pick up 2 or 3 of those.

I saw this in Field and Stream a few years ago. Seems decent.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I'm trying to find a way to carry the ammo without something external. I have one of those cheesy padded "slings" on the rifle and I've about decided to cut small slits in the padded portion and put the shells in the slits. Doesn't have to hold alot...just 10 or 12 rounds.

Maybe you should hollow or drill out a pocket under the butt-plate for a few extra rounds??

Slot one butt plate screw so it side-swings off the hole and, Here WEGO.

I've seen what you're talking about- a nylon or neoprene slip-on buttstock pouch for .22 shells. I did a quick search but all I could find was this

Already did that, but those are for emergency.

I have some that were specifically made up for the 17HMR to .204R.
I have quite a lot of interest in them from the US so will get some
to someone over their to sell them shortly. At the moment, I have
been sending them to US buyers.

Another Catch .22 vote here. Can't quite get the hang of loading my mag with it, but it seems perfect for a "walking around" application.

Dunno if mentioned, and dunno how many of you will frown upon this, but a buddy had a good idea on his $60 marlin, he dug out enough of a square in one side of the stock to permanently fix an empty altoids tin (or whatever similar you'd like) and just keeps em in that

Buy a cheap pistol magazine, keeps your spares handy and can strip a round right off the mag into the action. Rounds won't rattle around or get 'pushed' off the stock walking around. Cheap nylon pouch on the belt hols the magazine--or just in a shirt pocket.

This thing has velcro removable shell holders that attach both inside and outside. It has a zippered pocket to hold extra ammo, cleaning or other stuff. Velcro straps are adjustable to any stock. I have 4 of them on various rifes/shotguns.

Best of all it is under $10 here. The rifle cartridge holder will hold .410s the pouch will hold a bunch of .22s

Since it is a 22/410, why not get a normal cheapy buttstock shell holder that can hold 410 shells, and make some tubes that also fit the sleeves that can hold 3-4 22 shells apiece?

Something like this guy did:

I've found that a heavy-duty zip-lock bag work really great in my pocket for .22LR and .22 Mag. Shells conform to contours, don't rattle, and stay clean.
