|I'm not sure how everyone got all 50 shells into the bandolier without it coiling up into an unwearable mess. I immediately put 50 12 ga shells into it, and the resulting "snugness" caused the bandolier to curl up like a phone cord. I suppose 20 gauge, being smaller, would not have this problem.
It's not a bad problem, regardless - I simply spaced the shells, 5 at a time, with an empty shell holder. This allows me to keep my ammo organized in the bandolier, and it no longer curls up. You do lose 8 shell slots, but seriously, 42 shells is still way more than I'm used to carrying. The construction otherwise is good, and at this price, I would still recommend this bandolier.|
