Is a Mills-type high capacity canvas cartridge belt for 45 Colt available off-the-shelf or otherwise? If such a belt is available, please identify contact from where.

Naphtali, look up Wolf Ears Equipment in Laramie, Wyoming and give Stan Dolega a call. He is a fine guy and he makes great canvas belts at a very fair price. He just made me one for my .44 Special, with a few extra loops for .50-70.

Cool!

I have a couple San Pedro Saddlery canvas belts but sadly they're no longer in business.

I believe all of the reproductions available today have sewn loops.
Actual Mills loops, woven into the fabric are no longer made.

Check Buffalo Arms in Montana. I have been using a canvas belt for years from them. Mine is10ga.shotshells, but they have a Mills Belt also.

Buckeye, at one point Stan made the belts that Buffalo Arms sold. Don't know if that is still the case.

No clue from me, but I do know I have been using mine several days a week for over 10 years and it still looks great and shows no wear other than where the buckle. Touches the leather around the belt hole.
