Following on from the thread about ammo on aircraft I was wondering if anyone has travelled with their rifle in one of the peli cases?
I have a blaser with the blaser case but after having a metal rod tube destroyed by baggage handlers earlier this year was thinking of something even more robust and, of course, the peli cases come top of the list. However, the large rifle case weighs in at 11kg!! A smaller case might do but by the time I add scope, sling, bipod etc. it might take a large one. I know all airlines are different, and if you call them they have no idea what they are talking about and only confuse you, but has anyone travelled on, say, Easyjet with an 11kg peli plus a 4-5kg rifle plus their normal luggage? What about on other carriers?
