These molds are for sizing, making, and shaping cartridge loops for slides, belts, bandeleros and rigs. There are 6 to each size of cartridge - .32-20, .44-40, .45-70 for a total of 18 molds. These were the popular size cartridges in the Old West in that they would fit both rifle and pistol and the .45-70 fit other long guns. These cartridge loops come in handy whether you are lacing the loops through, hand sewing the loops, or sewing with a machine as you can tell by the pictures that we have put up.
There are several advantages to using cartridge loop molds over using the real thing - first off since they are solid cast resin polymer you can shape wet leather around them and it will not mark or discolor the leather, secondly you won't need to stick live rounds into the wet leather, thirdly it's safer because you'll be handling something that has no possibility of ever having an accidental discharge.
These molds shown are not live ammo and in no way can be made to work as such. They are the shape and size of .32-20 caliber, .44-40 caliber, and .45-70 caliber but they are solid cast resin polyurethane and are an off white color. They can be drilled, sanded and painted for use in a variety of projects.

I asked for a custom set of ammo mold models to show off my western ammo add-on belt slides. Aaron & Angie had no problem accommodating my needs. I have purchased several items from them & have never been dissatisfied with their product, service or communication. Anyone looking for mold models for leather craft should definitely check them out. You won’t be sorry!
