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.

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.
