I use a Pelican 1200 as an ammo carrier for all of my hunting trips. Flying international, I keep my ammo, rangefinder, rifle cleaning kit, earplugs, torque wrench for scopes/actions, lens pen, and leatherman in that case. Basically, everything related to loading, repairing, maintaining, or sighting my rifles is in that case.

Ditto...I also packed some miscellaneous stuff in with the ammo.

I picked this case up at a local Harbor Freight store for around $15.00 if memory serves. I finally got around to seeing what it would hold. I am always looking for ways to save on space in checked bags. This size case is about perfect for three factory size boxes of .416 Remington. Had to remove top and bottom foam to close lid.

I recently returned from a trip to Botswana routing through JoBurg. I was not required to pull the Ammo case out of my duffel bag on either SAA flight. I did go prepared to do so with a locking boyt (pelican style) case. You never know what you’re going to get in JoBurg!

I had to open mine (Pelican 1200) when I got to Tanzania, on the way out they counted my ammo and weighed it also.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
