    Hi, I am looking for a shell carrier (slip-on) that could fit onto a thumbhole stock.

    I'd like one that could hole ~9 rds and with slip on to the buttstock.

    So far I have been looking, but all seem too small to fit over a thumbhole stock (Remington XR-100). It looks like it'd need to be pretty wide do to the stock (~4-5 inches).

    Does anyone know of a company that makes larger shells carriers?

    Thanks,

    AU

    you know, i have seen quite a few of these in various places. but, i really do not want to lug around the extra weight on my rifle (i know its not that much, but carry that puppy around all day, it will wear on you). and, if you get it caught in the brush, you loose one or more shells. it just doesnt sound like a good deal to me. i opted for one that fits on my belt. that way, my legs (strongest part of your body) carries the extra weight. you dont have to worry about it getting snagged in the brush, and they stay clean, warm, and dry. think about it for a minute or so. as for one that specificly fits a thumbhole stock. what would the difference be from a standard elastic fit one? they fit far enough back that it should not interfere with the thumbhole.

    I have one from Cabelas that fits on every rifle I own. For $5, it can't really hurt to try it.

    This rifle I don't carry in the field. It is just a target rifle that stays stationary on a bench rest or sand bags, so weight is not an issue with me. As well, the standard ones don't seem to fit the stock of my thumbole. It is ALOT taller than standard stocks.

    Thanks I'll definitly look into that.
