Ok I know how to load stripper clips and fill the cardboard boxes but how do you fill the four pocket bandoleers?? Any one have photos, mine just don't seem right. Any help appreciated.

Not sure what you are asking exactly but it should work like this: 10 rounds per Stripper Clip 3 stripper clips per card board insert 1 Carboard insert per bandoleer pocket So you would have 120 rounds in the bandoleer. Hope this helps

Well I don't know how the filled cardboard boxes go into the bandoleer and if its then folded, how its folded. It seems to me the cardboard boxes fit pretty loosely and that the fold-over flaps do not cover the boxes completely and I don't know how or if the bandoleer itself is folded or worn? Thanks for your help. BTW a search did not reveal any answers to these questions. Thanks in advance. Robert

Your right the flaps do not cover the ammo in the pockets. To Fold it fold the bando across the flat backing and it folds in half. As to putting them in the pockets, just put em in brass up and you are fine.

The bandoleer is also designed to hold 4 loaded 30 rd mags " a note to all the SHTF wierdos who wan't to carry alot of loaded mags ! " that is why the strippers in the cardboard fit loose in the pockets, pull the white string out. the old 6 pouch bando will hold loaded 20 rd'rs also. Also the bandos are folded accordian style out of the can with the strap wrapped around them...

A note to all the non-SHTF weirdos: The old ones have 7 pockets. [;)]

Thanks Troy, I should have checked the Ammo Oracle first! The bandoleers just seem a little unweildy and unsecure. I guess they are a secondary means of storage/transportation and they go in something and are not worn or used to lug ammo??
