What do you use to carry extra rifle cartridges when hunting? A carrier on the rifle butt stock, some type of belt carrier or something else.

I use an uncle mikes belt carrier. Folds in 3 so its nice compact and tight.

With my 7600 I carry an extra clip. With my bolt actions and levers I carry ten round belt wallets, 5 loaded and 5 in the wallet.

Everything but my levers have removable mags so I have a spare in my pocket. My levers all hold enough so I don't need to Carry spares.

I have 5 rounds in the gun , an extra clip in my vest for a quick reload plus one extra round in my pocket plus an extra clip and a single round in my fanny pack. If i miss 15 shots then its time to throw the gun in the swamp and go home. LOL

Extra magazine(s) with my 7600, one loose round in a front pocket always and if I'm using a rifle without a mag, I usually rubberband 3-4 rounds together and have that in my pack.

I have two leather pouches I carry one each side, on my belt, that are made for the 760 mags by the Hunter company. Also have a older Kolpin leather snap pouch that has loops inside that can carry about 5-7 rounds that I keep as extra rounds in a spare pack left in truck

Funny story. I know a guy with a 7600 in a 35 Whelen. He was hunting a swamp edge. All of a sudden a nice buck came blistering across the swamp. He emptied his gun at the running deer. He put his spare clip in. Not 30 seconds later, the buck came back across on a dead run. He emptied his gun again, and watched the buck bound into the woods. He started walking over to the area to look for blood. All off a sudden the buck came running back across, only this time, he stopped broad side and looked at the hunter. The guy was out of ammo!

A clip in my back pocket, a clip in my belt pack, and a cartridge carrier holding 10 shots on my belt. Don't anticipate missing that many shots but they can be good communication in the big woods in an emergency.

Spare mag in my jacket pocket and another 8 shells on my belt in a nylon uncle mikes cartridge holder.

Thanks for all of the replies. I'll look into a spare clip & maybe a small cartridge holder.

A clip in the gun, one in my coat pocket and one in my belt pack. Like others said I don't anticipate needing them but out in the mountains it's a long walk back to the truck for more ammo.

I always carry two extra clips for my 7400. I always carry a spare pair of mittens and a clip goes inside each mitten and than inside the game pouch in the back of my coat, or in my waist pack if I'm carrying it that day.
