I'm hoping to use a locked Pelican case for my ammunition, seperate from the guns of course. I'll be flying a combination of Air Canada and SAA, from what I can tell, I'm in accordance however I've recently heard rumours of metal cases being required. Any thoughts?
 
As far as I know, you will be fine with a Pelican as it is lockable and not easily broken into.

Another piece of advice off topic would be to avoid Air Canada if you can. I don't know about you, but I really object to the extra fee they charge - both ways - for your firearm. I will not pay it and I have always been able to find a flight with another airline that does not penalize hunters with rifles. :mad:
 
Hey Ardent. I was in Africa recently and I flew SAA with a pelican case for both my rifles and ammunition. Absolutely not a problem.
 
I use a small Pelican case for my ammo (with padlocks) and put it in my checked baggage. No problem on AA and Quatar Air.

looking for 300 h & h flanged ammo
Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
