Hornstone Shooting Accessories: cartridge pouch, an honest review

As we at SACS have said previously, supporting small local businesses is important so we are pleased to let members know about Hornstone’s products. This is an honest and unpaid-for review of a Hornstone leather cartridge pouch, which one of our staff members has bought for themselves at full price.

Sometimes, using a cartridge pouch is a better option than weighing down coat or vest pockets. British company Hornstone offers handmade leather pouches and other shooting accessories, made with the company ethos ‘functionality, quality and fine craftsmanship.’ After leaving the army, company boss Leon developed his leather working skills and, after moving to rural Derbyshire and becoming involved in hunting, launched Hornstone as an online business.

I found Hornstone after searching for a good quality, reasonably-priced and British-made cartridge pouch for summer clay shooting and warmer autumn game days. I chose a 25-cartridge pouch in rugged brown waxed leather, excellent value at £33.99. The pouch arrived in a grey cloth dustbag, ideal for storage and transport when the pouch is not in use. Ordering online without seeing a product before purchase can be a gamble, but not with Hornstone. This is a genuinely high-quality item, with robust leather and strong stitching. The design allows easy access for loading, and I know it will last for many years.

Hornstone offer a variety of pouch sizes, styles and designs, suitable for all needs and tastes; it is also possible to have items monogrammed for an extra £5, and to add a matching belt in a wide range of sizes. If leather isn’t your thing, Hornstone also provide canvas cartridge boxes in both green and brown, as well as custom colours across the range and materials such as tweed.
