Mills Double Loop Cartridge Belt for the Krag Rifle


Recommended Posts

I just picked up this dark blue Mills 100 Round, double loop cartridge belt used from the mid 1890's til the M1903 Cartridge belt was adopted.

 

The weird thing with this belt is that every other double loop had the stitching removed. I've read that some of these belts had the stitching removed from the double loops to hold shotgun shells. But why would someone remove stitching on every other loop?
