Can you leave your locked ammunition box in your checked baggage with South African Air?

On my trip down and back last year my ammo was in a checked bag from SLC to NY on Delta and then to Joberg on SAA. We picked up our luggage and rechecked it to fly to Port Elizabeth on SAA and didn't remove our ammo, it was in our checked bags.

On our way back from Port Elizabeth we had to remove our ammo box from our checked bags to fly on SAA to Joberg. I then picked up my bags and placed the ammo box back into my checked bag in Joberg for the flight to the US on SAA with no problems.

On the surplus ammo can, my hunting partner did that but it was a plastic ammo can with a way to place a lock on it. No problems.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
