    I've used those MTM wallets. They useful for the task. I've also used a 1911 magazine whenever I hunt with my convertible Blackhawk shooting 45 Supers.

    However, as mentioned above, I've never had to use more than what's in the cylinder. So I usually go without any. Of course, I'm not very far from civilization where I hunt, not miles into the backwoods or anything.

    I've been studying on this myself. I've used a six round cartridge slide from El Paso Saddlery previously. Now, I've concluded that I'll get a speed strip pouch from Simply Rugged to hold a half dozen .45 Colt rounds with the side benefit that when I'm squirrel hunting it will serve to hold a few rounds of .22 ammo to feed my Single Six (not at the same time of course).
    All that is neccessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing.

    I found these plastic holders at work. Some taps in the tool crib come packaged in them. Mu 45 colt fit in them, but you have to orient them properly. They work for 308 w, tooClick image for larger version.

    I forgot to mention, I use ammo wallets too. I have some vintage yellow ones from flambeau for 44 that I picked up at an old gun shop. I keep one in the car and one in my pack of hunting or if I’m going gun store hopping with a friend.

    Wear cargo pants. Ya oughta be able to get a few hundred rounds in all those pockets, then just grab and go instead of fiddlin' around with boxes, loops or other such impediments.

    I still like Ammo Wallets. Have several, from pistol to rifle. Make sure a mark to be sure I have the right one (LOL) GW

    It’s a single shot, there is nothing fast about reloading it and for hunting how many rounds do you really need. A handful in my pocket does the trick.

    AmericasGunStore.com has some nice holster rigs for single action revolvers, belt have ammo loops.
    A single action revolver without a decent holster rig is like eating a stack of pancakes without butter and syrup.
    Why you would need more ammo than what is in the cylinder is a mystery for hunting unless you shoot a lot of game on one outing, of course it is always nice to have spare ammo.

    You sound just like my Dad ... He would give me one ... 1 ... round and say ...

    He didn't believe on wasting ammo ... I don't think I ever saw him shoot at anything he didn't plan on eating ... I guess being raised during the the big depression ... it does things to you !

    You might also want to get some good suspenders AND a belt. A few hundred rounds in pants cargo pockets, you'll be running around like some city hoodlum with your pants hanging below your butt.

    Since my ammo supply has been questioned. I carry a magazine full plus a belt carrier or half a factory box well taped with heavy yellow duct tape. At least I think it is duct tape. Tapng was done by an uncle that sporterized my O3A3 many years ago. Uncle passed away about 40 years ago. For the most of my rifle hunting one round has sufficed. Except for first deer. That took the entire magazine of a Swedish Mauser carbine. She was running and I was excited. Shot low and broke all legs. Took two rounds to put her down. You have to aim even at two feet. Haven't decided how to carry spare ammo yet but I want to thank everyone for their suggestions.

    I hunt the swamp with my .44 Bisley. I carry 6 extra in a speed loader simply to keep them neatly together at hand, and zipped in a small pouch on the side of my field pack. Every deer I shot with the .44 just died right there. In almost 30 years, I've never needed them. I still carry them though, I guess I just can't think of anything else to put in that little pouch.

    I discovered that an old flip-phone belt case holds 2 6-rnd speed strips for .357 that are easily accessible

    When deer hunting I would end up carrying the single shot 16 ga. with 2 rounds “just in case another one comes around” while waiting for the truck to pick up me and my deer. When dove hunting I (again) got the 16 ga. but this time with enough rounds to “limit out” which was something that rarely happened when I was a kid. It did teach me something….

    My Italian single action revolver is chambered for the 45 ACP. I carry my spare ammo in a 1911 magazine.

Primary calibers are 357 and 44Mag. Thanks for all suggestions.

    Bianchi brand speed strips work great to feed right into a single actions loading gate. I have several. When toting my single actions w/o a gun belt I have a couple of these in my pocket. Very handy.
