Very nice.  What are the dimensions?

It is roughly 8 x 8.  I made it a tad bigger because it services my double barrel shot gun so I need room for shot containers, a couple of different wads, and patches and round ball, etc.   It has a tiny pocket inside to hold a tin of percussion caps; other than that it is just an open pouch.

Looks to be about the right size for a hunting pouch, WW.....and I love the 'camo' material you chose!   What do you use for a shot container?

I was gifted a shot snake with an Irish style control head.  I also have a collection of thick walled old fashioned glass bottles that I use when I'm feeling really traditional.

It is a start.  No the horn that is a beat up old thing I grabbed at a gun show a few years ago.  The end is split so I patched it with some rawhide.  It holds powder -- just barely :D
