carying large magnum ammo in the field

Im looking for a container to carry 300 rum ammo in the field, for when I want to glass all day and take some shots. What do you guys carry your ammo in? Im like to find as compact as possible 20 round case that really protects the bullets.

Look at MTM stuff - they make flat cases that hold 10 or 20 rounds and go in your jacket pocket.

I agree, MTM cases are good to use.

I have a MTM slip top box that holds 20 rnds of 7STW (loaded long). It holds them in 2 rows of 10. I also have a MTM box that holds 20 rnds of 300RUM. This box holds 3 rows of 7, minus 1 where the clip is. I believe that they were bought from Midsouthshooterssupply.com

What I can not seem to find is an Ammo Wallet that will hold 7-10 rnds of 7STW (loaded with long A-Max bullets) or 300RUM ammo. Wallets seem to be available for everything smaller and the really big stuff like 460Wby, 416Rigby and other fat-so's.

I have two different brands of wallets. I do not know who makes one of them but it holds 6 rounds of 7 AM (338 Lapua size) and is hard sided and protects the bullets well. The other is from bass Pro and holds 10 rounds but is softsided and does not protect the bullets as well. Both are very quiet and don't rattle. Achieving low runout only to lose it during hunting is stupid.

Go to Bass Pro and run search on : RedHeadŽ Cartridge Pouches.

I have a few Blackhawk 20 round ammo carriers that work fine for my 6.5-300 Weatherby ammo. They are shown as being for .308, but they have adjustable closures that allow them to carry the longer cartridges. I find them to be enough protection for hunting, without the bulk and noise of a 20 round MTM box. The "speed clip" version will go on a belt.

I used the MTM ammo wallets, but the best thing I have found to use is a choke tube box with 2 separators allowing 3 cartridges. I can carry 2 or 3 of those and I not have a big weight in one place. They are black backed and semi clear covered. I just added a little more foam that was like what was already in there and it is great.

If I would need more than even 1 of the 3 shells my .30-378s hold, I would be having a bad day and would go home anyway.
