Magnetic Shotshell holder from TACCOM

TACCOM is in the works to produce a magnetic shotshell carrier for 3 gunners and shotgun competitors. They only have a prototype so far and are accepting preorders to the tune of $54. Although for a product to be released for shipping on the 19th, I’d expect at least a few pictures instead of an animation. It says it can hold either 8 or 12 shells, but I can’t tell if that means a different carrier for 12 because the one they have pictured only holds 8. In addition I can’t tell if by taking one shell out, it allows the bottom shell to stay attached or if it falls out.

Using rare earth magnets and rubber cushions…..we push the column to the top and hold them in place with approximately 6 pounds of force. The benefit of this design is that the shells can not buckle of “V” when you go prone on them. Basically, the shells will SMOOTHLY come out when you want them to.

We allow for a generous amount of room under the shells. This allows plenty of space to get a solid grip on the shells before they are removed from the holder. There is ample room for shooters with big hands.

The QUALOAD MG is completely compatible with Teklok and ELS mounting systems.


  • Holds 8 – 12 Gauge Shells
  • Stacks shells for control and ease of loading
  • Works with Teklok or ELS systems SOLD SEPARATELY
  • SHIPPING 10-19-15

    Problem: Shells are brass or plastic.. Non-ferrous…. I’m obviously misunderstanding their concept…

      Try taking a magnet to your shotgun shells, you might be surprised 😉

      The brass you see is just a coating on steel which is very ferrous

        That is something I didn’t know but now makes some sense seeing as how I recently found an old .410 shots hell with rust around the “brass” head.

  • They aren’t saying that it holds between 8 and 12 shells, they are talking about the gauge range that will fit.

    Where does one buy ferous shells?

    • thedonn007

      Actually. I think it says that it will hold 8, 12 gauge shells.

      That’s another way to say “steel shot”.

  • AndyT

    I guess it only works with steel shot?

    Was this first published on April 1st?

  • Vitsaus

    No offense, but how is this even an article?

  • The dirty little secret of most plastic shotshell hulls is that they use steel heads plated with copper to give the appearance of brass. Back when plastic hulls were introduced commercially during the 1960s, the plastic formulations used did not play nice with the brass.

    Maybe TFB should invest in remedial reading courses for its writers. TACCOM does NOT claim to have a 12 round version of this Rube Goldberg device. They say that it holds Eight 12 Gauge shells. Apparently TFB has Miles reviewing shotgun products without being able to recognize the common bore size of a shotgun.
