Mr. Youngfowler....here is what I would like you to look into. I have a thread in guns/ammo about an ar10 build I am working on...or I should say my builder is working on. I would be interested in your ideas for a sling. I would need to be more robust as the gun is going to be heavy. I would need to include a pad(s) for the shoulders. Think of a normal sling with two over the should straps, like a Y connected at the top. In my mind if I could slip my head though the middle of the Y and have both shoulders bear the weight it would take the strain off a single shoulder. Now, considering the shape of the sling the rifle may end up being suspended on the horizontal vs. vertical. Can this be done? Are there safari style slings or combat slings you could model this from? I don't know. If you come up with an idea/design that could aid me in my efforts I would love to hear them. PM with ideas, questions, concerns, possibilities. This gun is in production now and will be hunted with in the fall of 2017.
 

I very interested in this set up too. Let me know if you come up with something.

I think you are on the right track. the spacing around the neck needs to be pretty standard...adjustable here and there?......and we need some form of padding between the cord and the top of the shoulders. I think you are on the right track. Now, this is only meant as helpful.....but don't jump back on later today and pitch me, us, something. We can find something basic online, what we need is something that is just right. Post up some ideas, get some feedback, go back to the drawing board. I need to say yes, that's exactly what I want so just name your price...if not...I'm moving on young man.. :tup:

Here's what I was thinking,
So, I would have the straps for you shoulders made one inch wide (as thick as a gun sling, thicker than a lanyard). Then to make it adjustable, I would have the bottom not be tied and just have two paracord strands. One strap would have a buckle so you can tighten or loosen it and the bottoms can slide tighter or looser. For the shoulder pads, I would make something like on these waders thoughts?

Yep, now you are thinking. Are those shoulder pads fixed? Wl they slide out of place? Just thoughts...

Yes they could slide up and down the straps

Here's what it looks like on a paracord strap

Not a bad start.  I think you need something padded. Heavy gun gonna dig in.

Side note..  you got a BDO logo yet? Dog in thecwoods walking upright with dark glasses and a shotty?

Just my opinion, but I would want the two lower ends to come together into one and then connect to the bottom clip. Allowing the bottom to slide on the clip, as shown in the sample drawing, is going to allow the rifle to slide around in my opinion. I would do the top the same. If you look at your example photo, the two shoulder straps come together into one prior to connecting to the clip. A buckle on each strap would then allow for adjustment like a backpack.

If you come up with a sample, I may be interested also.

I think having it to be able to be adjusted on both sides is a must and as stated above having the bottom fixed and not slide would be good. So far looking good!

Ok fixed bottom, and you want better pads too, right? How about something like this?

Thought some of you guys working with Mr. YoungFowler would like to see his early goose season success. Just a little more incentive for him to keep his blind bag full of ammo and calls. Thanks guys, for supporting and inspiring him to work hard at this. :)

So here's what I've got, a backpack style sling that's one inch wide. The bottom does not slide, it splits at a y to the two straps. Each strap has its own adjustable clip. Each shoulder also has a pad. Thoughts? Anything else you want?

This looks good to me as long as it has a snap style clip at the bottom  and a regular clip like you made me before at the top.
