    Default Transporting Ammunition to South Africa

    Planning a trip to South Africa and need some info on what kind of box to transport the ammunition in. Is a plastic ammo box good enough for customs or what is required for the travel. Thanks for the info in advance.

    Our TSA website is another place to look and the airline you will flying may have its own rules. Plastic ammo boxes are usually fine but tape the lids down and if possible place some foam in the lid to place soft pressure on the bullets so they dont rattle around. Movement seems to the the bugaboo with shippers. Most of the rules are vague at best. I have taken my ammo in plastic boxes for years and no one seems to care. But I do as stated above. THe foam that bullets are often packed in works well for box lids.
