Ed, you can only bring ammo of the caliber of the rifle you bring, and limited to 200 rounds.  At least where I intend to hunt Cape Buffalo...

Can I bring my 404 Jeff as well to compare and contrast? Can we for tax purposes make this a learning / training trip?

Scrummy

Back in the Olde Days when dinosaurs roamed the Earth I arrived at Jan Smuts airport in Johannesburg. I showed them my rifles and they gave me a permit for them. No one asked me about ammunition. 

Later when my wife arrived I am sure she brought more ammunition for my rifles but I can't remember exactly. Later I bought reloading equipment and reloaded my own stuff.

You're thinking wrong... you need a backup that is SLOWER than you, gun is irrelevant.... kind of like when a bear attacks... you don't have to outrun the bear... just your buddy.
