Our idea of a Cowboy Action Shooting® rig but it also makes a great everday rig.  It includes a Money Belt with eight semi-woven shotgun shell loops and a double row of semi-woven (these can be had full woven or sewn) revolver cartridge loops. When  worn the shotgun loops are just to the rear of the right hip for those quick reloads.  The belt can also be made with the shotgun loops in the center and double rows (5-10 per row) of pistol cartridges either side.  When made like this, you turn the buckle to the back and your shotgun loops then come out center front (see Gun Belt #3).  This is actually the best way, buckle in back, to wear any cartridge belt when riding horseback, especially with a high cantle - the cartridges and loops don't get beat up and the cartridges don't get pushed out. This style is often seen worn by lawmen, especially around the turn of the century (that's the year 1900) with rifle/revolver loop combos or even shotgun/revolver/rifle combos and can be made in any practical combination. Belt widths run 3" with single rows of revolver cartridges up to 4"- 5" for double rows. See this rig also at Gun Belt #1
