    So i just got myself a Marlin Model 60 .22 rifle and i need a way to carry around bullets without having to carry them in my pockets, i was wondering if anyone knew of a buttstock shell holder for .22 LR, if anyone knows of one you can buy or how to make one i would greatly appreciate it.

    Have you thought of using a cartridge belt?

    I have, but i would rather have a shell holder as it seems easier since i won't have to have a belt on all the time.

    If you want to make the rifle "utilitarian". Do as I did on a .22 single shot.

    Get a small brass hinge hasp like this: Image Detail for - solid brass hasp with hook 3 4 x 2 3 4 for use on chests cabinets ...

    Remove the bottom screw on the butt plate. Use a belt sander and sand the bottom of the butt stock down to the width of the hinge hasp.

    Carefully attach the rear of the hinge hasp to the inside of the butt plate so the latch side lays flat on the bottom of the butt stock. Locate and attach the loop side so the hinged side with the j hook fits over it.

    Use a drill bit slightly larger than a .22 round and drill a series of "honey combed" holes.


    If you want to see it, look up the .22 survival gun beauty contest submission thread.

    That's a good idea, but i would rather not drill holes in my stock. Thank you for the suggestion though, i appreciate it.

    With a tube fed magazine you can get one of these or use aluminum arrow shafts for .22 storage.I stick one in my back pocket for the walk a bout shoot.

    Why not just hang a little cloth drawstring tobacco bag from the trigger guard?

    You talking about loose rounds? Maybe try one of those mag pouches for an M1 Carbine, you could put a LOT of .22's in those two pouches. Might want to put 'em in a little Ziploc baggie to keep 'em from falling out. Take the action out of the stock and it should just slip right on. You wouldn't need a real WWII pouch, a repro would be fine.

    That would be PERFECT, any idea where you can get them?

    If you know someone who is a good seamstress, try showing them a buttstock holder for a shotgun and ask if they can sew up one that fits a 22 shell.

    I got the impression he's wanting to haul handfuls, not just a couple of singles.

    It`s a 22. I`ll bet there are a ton of guys who just left them in the box or emptied a couple of boxes ino their pocket and off they went. As a kid I did just that.

    I did the same thing for a spell, but it's not a good thing to do, especially in the rain, since they're so small bullets they are very easy to loose.

    The carbins ammo pouch will be more trouble than it's worth because there will be too much space on the cover that it will not snap down tight enough for .22 rounds...unless you put boxes in the holder.

    If you want to carry a handful of rounds, find an old military bandage pouch you can hook onto your belt. The bandage pouch (commonly called a first aid pouch) will close and snap tighter so you can carry loose rounds or a couple boxes.

    I was thinking if he did it up in a double row he might be able to carry 10-20 rounds on the stock given they are 22s
