Default What is your favorite rifle gun case?

I am trying to figure out what new rifle gun case to buy.
My new rifle is a Savage 12 BTCSS with a Millet 50mm scope & wont fit in my old sbk hard case.

What hard case for rifle you like/recommend?

With good reason. They are airtight, they float, they can handle the luggage monkeys at the various airports around the world, and you will never experience a blowout due to construction. I ran over one with a Dakota 4 x 4 once to prove to a guy that the "plastic" won't give out when weight is added.

You asked what our favorite was. There is a reason why this is it.

Well you have a valid point. I sure dont want to put my new gun in a cheap case. My other case is a SBK and I have had it for so long I dont have a clue what I paid for it. I suppose I just need to get it done, but that dont mean I gonna feel good about it.

I do appreciate all of your knowledge and experiences.

I have purchased several of them from www.cases4less.com and can recommend them without concern.

There used to be a brand, I think it was called Storm Case maybe, that was kind of a clone or knock off. Someone told me that Pelican bought them out, but I don't know if that is the case.

You might want to also check Cheaper Than Dirt. They sometimes have a good deal on one of these hardside "style" cases.

They are nice and rugged comparable cases to Pelican/Storm cases as well, but seems they are just a little bit more prouder of their rifle cases reflected by their price....
