My fiance and I will be heading to SA next year. If we both take one rifle can we share a case or do we need to bring them in separate cases?
 
You can do whatever you like.
2-3-4 to a case no problem as long as it's an airline approved case.
 
Your good with one case, two 4457's one for each rifle. One in your name and the other in hers.

And I'd recommend a pre approved SAPs 520
 
I also believe you are good with one case but you can always Contact Henry atRiflepermits.com @riflepermits.com he is the man with answers

 
When it comes to the legalities of importing rifles and doing other things in a different country there are no dumb questions
 
So no limit on the number of guns - as long as in an airline approved case, and doesn't go over weight limit? Is weight limit 45lbs?

23kgs is the maximum as far as I remember
 
I will share what I witnessed as I waited to clear my rifles behind 2 guys that shared the same case in 2022.
The hunters (not same last name) explained that they were "sharing" a case. CBP asked who owned the case. One of them said he did and then the agents wanted to know where the other guys case was. Something about they couldn't be shared and only the case owner is suppose to know or have the keys to open it.
CBP cleared them after a tongue lashing.

No idea who was right or wrong but the on duty CBP agents seemed to think they were in the right.
 
Put both guns on one 4457 under 1 name , to my knowledge they never check who actually owns the guns just make sure the serial numbers are correct. But the last time I took rifles was 2021 and things change.

That would possibly work as long as they don't shoot the same cartridge
 
For anyone interested, I checked Delta's luggage limit - 50 lb and 62 linear inches (length + width + height)

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
