    Nylon Shell holders for stocks

    How well do nylon shell holders made to slip on shotgun stocks perform. They seem like they would slip and move pretty easy.

    They perform well for about a year or two, then the elastic wears out and they need to be replaced.

    Agreed, the elastic wears out after a while and they start to slip.

    I solved this problem on my H/D shotgun, an old Savage/Stevens 12 gauge double barrel, by hammering in a line of carpet tacks along the top edge of the buttstock, through the nylon shell carrier.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Nylon

    To secure a carrier to the stock you might be able to put the rear sling swivel stud through the bottom of the nylon to keep it from slipping. Also try to keep the shells a bit low on the stock. If you ever need to fire from the opposite shoulder, like from around a particular piece of cover in your home or while wounded, you don't want the shells on your cheek when you do.

    This is what I did too. Using a heated up punch I melted the nylon where I wanted the sling swivel to poke thru.

    Yep, I have done this on several shotguns and the holder stays put and lasts a long time.

    They are okay at best IMO. Better than okay on rubber stocks as opposed to wood or fiberglass to limit slippage. In my opinion, a side-saddle shell holder that attaches to the receiver is much better, and you wouldn't have to un-shoulder your weapon or loose track of your target in order to reload.
