Default Padded Rifle Sling

Through trial and error, I think I finally hit on the right design. Two layers of 5-6 oz leather, foam padding with soft suede cover for a slip resistant surface, and full length stitching. Length is 35" +/-. Shown with optional cartridge loops.





Is that Sexy enough for ya Dub?

Thank you. How long is the rifle, and what type of sling mounts?

Thank you. I do have some of the earlier slings for sale, one with oak leaves and basket weave, one with just basket weave and cartridge loops for 25-06.

Looks awesome! Wouldn't 25-06 cartridge loops work for essentially any -06 derivative cartridge?

To be honest, I have no idea. As many different cartridges as there are, I can't keep up. I did two slings for the same fella, one for the 25-06 and one for a 308 maybe? In any case, the rounds fit both loops.
