US Navy Cartridge Belt c. 1907 (Naval Snaps) 40 Rnds

I-net. I regretfully must do this because once again I find a dead camera battery at
the moment of need.
Moving right along... I had been seeking and recently acquired an identical cartridge
belt. The problem is now that I have it I can't quite identify exactly what it is.
I probably haven't used the right combination of string identifiers for Google to return
relevant data. I once saw an Ebay auction that described this as a gun(naval artillery)
primer cartridge bandoleer; yet, there was another that described it as a cartridge belt
for the obsolete, but still in service Lee-Remington rifles that many ships still had
Although the belt utilizes the early style C-Clamp and keepers, the naval eagle snaps
have a patent date of 1907. No Mills patent dates are on the buckles, only the phrase
"Made under Mills patents." The belt has a Mills stamp, so I'm placing this between
1907 and 1917.
What say ye? What is it?

I'm giving this topic a poke because I'd be interested in the answer (and this thread is nearly useless without one).
