Remember the Vietnam era M16 bandoliers that guys wore across their chests? Is there anything similar for 30 rounders? I want something I can throw over a shoulder or chest, not something to clip to a belt. Anyone know where to get something like that?

the current issue bandoliers hold 150 rounds in 30 round sections. after taking the ammo out there is a stitch line you can pull which enlarges the pocket to accomodate a 30 rounder

Last time I checked the current bandollers hold 120 rounds; 4 pockets of 30 rounds each. 150 would have been a smart move when they changed from the old, 7-pocket bandoleers, as that would add 10 rounds and fill 5 magazines.

Actually, the bandoleers of olden times are being remade to todays standards. Look into the Eagle Industries "Patrol Bandoleer" and see what you think. I'm waiting on the TPI mag-bag to come out before I make a decision, but I do like the EIPB!

No, they don't. They're the right ones. You can see the white stitch, and count the pockets.
I am anesthetized and generally tarnished. I am beset by varied arugulla and my ambulance has obligatory malfeasance. Compunctually, I can no longer obfuscate the oppossum I was dreanched for. What's going on?

So the 4 pocket $1.25 bandoliers that Wu's Surplus sells will hold 4 loaded 30 round mags? Or do they hold 30 rounds of loose ammo?

They'll hold 30round mags after you pull the stitch.
Before you pull the stitch, they each hold 3 10 round stripper clips in the cardboard.
