Nice and much, much better than the plastic ones. Just 100 rounds?

Yeah, that weighs about two pounds, and it fits nicely into my day pack. I'll throw a couple extra boxes of 50 into the pack if I'm taking a friend shooting. I'm making a second one now as a gift for a friend.

Made version 2.0 tonight. Beefed up the end pieces, simplified the measurements. I intend to go thicker for the centre slider next time.

@Farback, how did you attach the sliding tray and the rails to the ends. I like your idea a lot better than mine.

I used CA glue on the small glue block piece (3/8 x 3/8 x  3) that is on the underside where the top slider meets the front, but I think I’ll beef that up on version 3.0 with two small dowels drilled from the front of the end piece. The fixed end piece on version 2.0 is glued and screwed, with walnut plugs hiding the one inch #8 screws.

I think I might a a mortise or thru mortise. 

That’s a great idea. If I make more I’ll make the top slider a bit longer for the tenon.
