    Default original vs repro FJ bandoleer lenghts

    I have noticed that in period photos of FJs wearing bandoleers, the bandoleers seem to hang lower than on photos of reenactors. I have also heard reenactors saying new made bandoleers tend to be made shorter. Given that the ammo compartments must be about the same size, it would seem that the yoke is made smaller/shorter on modern made copies. Does anyone know the length of the yoke measured along either the outer or the inner, neck side of a typical original? Or, perhaps the modern day FJ reenactros are all too tall!
