Headed to SA in May. Was going to use a small pelican hard case for my ammo. But I thought I read somewhere that in 2019 it has to be in a locking metal case? Anyone steer me in the right direction?
Thanks Bryan

Transpiration reminds me of Botany 101! :)

I discussed this subject yesterday with the folks at Travel Express.

They still recommend ammo go into a lockable plastic pelican or similar.

You are all set with your Pelican case.

I have used an old ammo can before.
You get lots of funny looks in JFK with a can stenciled .30 M2AP

I do not recommend doing that btw.

If it is in your checked luggage why worry?

A friend used a plastic one that was marked the same way.

Because some regs require the ammo box be on the belt and checked separately.

It has happened to me.

I was referring to the poster being in NY, and in the US it doesn't need to be checked separately.

Now when in South Africa who knows what stares you will get when you check it, but luggage is luggage to most of them.

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
