These stunning and practical pieces feature two different African exotic woods and premium dovetail construction. African Salinga is used for the exterior of the box and African Rubberwood is used for the interior bullet tray. Each box holds 50 rounds and the boxes and bullet holes are custom-sized for each caliber. Standard sized boxes (30-06) measure approximately 5” tall, 5” deep and 9” across. Mid-bore Magnums (+$20) will be approximately 20% larger and Nitro Express calibers (+$50) will add an additional 20% to the box size. Since these cases are not metallic with a locking latch, they are not airline approved.
Premium dovetail joints are used for two reasons; because they are visually appealing and more importantly, the way the “tails” lock together makes them much stronger than flush joints. We always choose to err on the side of over-engineering and when you consider 50 rounds of .500 Nitro Express weighs eight pounds, a little extra insurance is a good thing. The heavy-duty handle is made from thick, vegetable tanned leather and the non-locking latch secures the case shut. The lid opens to approximately 135 degrees to conserve space on your bench and the bottom has four low profile rubber bumpers so the exotic wood does not get scratched.
