Default Columbia quickloader upland vest.....how to load shells!!!!!!!

Hi everyone, and fellow outdoorsmen. Im new to the forum, so here goes. Last year, my wife bought me a Columbia hunting vest(upland), the one with the "quickloader" tubes in it. Now, this is driving me nuts!!! I shoot a 12 gauge, and for the life of me, cant get the darn shells in those tubes!! I even took out the yellow inserts, which I believe were for 20 ga. shells. How many is it supposed to hold? Do you put them in from the top, or from the bottom-up?? And do they go in brass end first, or the other end first?? I couldnt figure it out, so all last humting season, I carried them in my pocket!!! I hope someone on here can enlighten me!! Id really like to be able to use this feature of the vest!! thanks!!

My girlfriend has the quick loaders on her waterfowl coat. Take out the yellow things for 12ga. Drop the shells in from the top crimp first brass last, just like you load the gun. Shake the shells down and they should drop through the hole in the bottom and get held up by the brass. To get a shell just pull it through, then the next shell will drop in behind it.

It is not the best system in the world but it works ok.
