I used to think that was a good idea as well, right up 'til I stepped in a rabbit hole down to my knee, I adjusted my approach on the way home to clean the rifle after dropping a projectile and half of the powder out of a case and using the remainder to get the six inches of dirt out of the barrel.

Now if I carry over the shoulder I point that muzzle up.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

For just a carry sling I use the Boonie Packer. It’s a basic carry sling that just works. What I like is it sticks to the shoulder well in the field, is lightweight, inexpensive, and made in the USA. One great feature is it’s simple to adjust and be tight to the rifle for in the safe storage. The do make a Safari sling but I have yet to actually try one out

I make my own nylon strap slings for my modern synthetic stock rifles , even install qd button bases in the stock. For wood and blue rifles I must have leather sling and like the Montana sling that Scenar shooter (Pat) sells. I have a Detroit Leather shop sling on order to give it a try.

You’ll possibly regret having a slippery leather sling...

Get the magnum if you are a bigger boy. It’s longer.

I use mostly mountain slings because I remove them and put them in the side pocket of my pants while hunting. For my Mannlicher carbine I use a Montana sling since I'm not going to remove it while hunting.

My Sendero with its big azz scope carries like nothing with my magnum Slogan Outdoors sling. The sling does not slip and makes a heavy rifle light when you sling it up.

Glad I happened upon this topic. Never heard of the "Ultimate Sling", but I'm going to give one a try.
