I do have some experience as a medieval reenactor. I have a cloak, which I wear over one shoulder in the old style.

Once I tried slinging while holding stones in my cloak. No can do, baby. Didn't go as far as trying to load one-handed. All the stones fell out when I did my cast.

Maybe this can tell us about what style of cast they used???

I went down to the creek this afternoon and hurled a few stones. I gathered several stones in the fold of my T-shirt, kind of like the slingers on Trajan's colomn. No problem! I could even load with one hand and get the stone off with no difficulty. Of course I hurl underhanded and that may make a difference. I can see with alot of practice, this form of holding your ammo would be very easy. Works for me!
