Thanks, Major.  I use Whyte bullets in my pistol calibers, and am happy with the.
Joe...maybe Mary would listen to you...I've given up.  I've considered casting on the sly....

Is there any value to the old belt? Might be better to just start anew and copy it.  What does the lettering say on the shot shell holders?  Never saw anything like that? Any idea on the date?

Might have to modify an old pair of pliers to hold them while you drill them. Assume you don’t care about the belt you can cut the belt back to get your pliers in there. Do some grinding on the nose on one side, keep the other side original length. Long nosed end on the bottom, concave cut back side [for the drill] on the top where you’re drilling. Might need to cut a radius on the jaw so as not to mar the inside of the brass tubes too. Just a suggestion. Use your drill press. They might come right apart.

Thanks. They may come apart easy. I will have to see. If not, maybe I will try something like that.

I've seen those before and just took them for grommets used for the purpose but maybe they're more stout than a grommet would be. Perhaps they're a full-drilled tubular rivet. One of the pros here may know more about them.

You should be able to drill them off if you do it carefully from the back and not let the drill go all the way through the hole and damage the shell holders. I suppose you could use double cap rivets from Tandy craft store. Those wouldn't look the same but would certainly do the job.

I was thinking that they were hollow rivets but after watching a few videos on hollow rivets I am not sure. I will def. research it some more. I know I could use other types of rivets but wanted to at least try to make it in the original style. Plan on using this with my original 1887 shotgun for hunting and possibly matches.

No bullet mold....Many Horses will not allow me to cast bullets.  She fears I will get lead poisoning.  It is a battle that I have lost with her.  I'll slug the barrel this weekend to confirm the bullet diam. needed.  Both Buffalo Arms and Midway have 515 bullets available.
After 45 years of casting, I still don't have lead poisoning and I have been tested for lead levels.  ;D

What I am wanting to do is take these brass shotgun shell holders off of the hold leather and replace them on a new leather belt.
