Magazine/Ammuntions holder for Marlin 22WMR
So this is my new ammo holder I made for myself. I have seen cases like this many times for centerfire rifle cartridges but I wanted one for my 22WMR. Well I thought about making one from scratch from some leather I have but it was going to be a lot of work so I was thinking about how to do it a bit easier. Well I had to run up to Home Depot to get some stuff and on the sales table was this cool case from DeWalt. It was made for holding screwdriver bits for a cordless screwdriver or drill. Well the light bulb went on, BING!, in my head and I snatch it up for a $1.18 I took it home busted out my ancient Montgomery Ward sewing machine that was my grandmother's and some extra webbing I had and the pictures that follow are what resulted.

There is also a small pocket on the inside. I like to keep a small peice of lense cloth there just incase I get something on the lenses of my scope.
