    as long as it has locks that will be fine. its only south africa and italy i think that you have the problem with having to have separate ammo box . the other countries you can pack the manufacturers cartons in your locked suitcase and airlines and security are happy.

    You should make sure you can put a lock on your suitcase too.

    Usually you be able to get by just locking the 2 hasps on your ammo box.

    I went through this in South Africa. Now depending on who you are dealing with you will need to be prepared for the following:

    However, just be aware that you may be asked to place a lock in the your luggage, i was asked to do this and i then fished around in the bag and pulled out my small lock and put it on the two zippers pulls. and they were fine with that.
