I purchased this shell bag as an efficient means for carrying 12 gauge shells on sporting clays courses. The description said it can carry 5 boxes of shells not boxed, and that is accurate. I found it very convenient to dump 5 five boxes into this well made bag and head to the course. The sturdy leather handle makes carrying the shells very easy. The quality is excellent. I am very pleased with this purchase as an introduction to Mission Mercantile products and am considering buying more.
