.22 Survival rifle (using the Marlin 795 as example)
#31
I always used broken arrows and/or plastic straws to hold ammo for my tube fed rimfires. In some cases they were struck in a hole in the stock. In some cases they were strapped to the forearm or rubber banded next to the tube. I would think one or more might fit between one of those ammo pouches and the stock.

BTW, I noticed the Ruger is selling an ammo pouch that fits on the buttstock of a 10/22. It is made to hold 10/22 mags or loose ammo.

In regards to ammo holders used in 12 ga loops. I would think some PVC pipe or other plastic tubing of appropriate size could be cut and capped to fit the shell loops

Waterproof as well which is a bonus.  I'd imagine you can find that type of bottle that is about the same size as a 12g shell.  Wrap it with a piece of duct tape as well.

Okay, that's a good idea.  Like a fire straw except fill it with some ammo.  The ends can still be crimped shut to keep it all waterproof as well.  I'm going to have to try this with various types of straws to see what works best.  We always use straws and have various sizes.

Another thing to play around with.  I've got 1/2, 3/4 and 1 inch on hand that's left over from my rabbit/quail hutch project.  Caps are easy enough to get from the hardware store and like you say, can be cut to whatever size you need.  And again, at the worse they are at least water resistant if not outright waterproof.
