Pelican 1750 for me. Some people are against spending the $200 on them but considering your investment into the rifle I think itís worth it. Last time I bought one academy had the best price.

Also saw the Pelican 3300..Looks like it just a little bit wider but not sure if it is worth the extra money...

I think the 3300 is made out of a different material as well.

Its worth noting that Rtic has a case now. Haven't got one in hand but they look very similar to the other molded cases at a much better price point

So think about why you need a case imo.


If you are flying what are th oversized dimensions? Can you stay under that?

If itís for none flying travel have you seen the air bags?

I have a big hard sided rifle case and have used it once. Now it just sits in the corner because I prefer soft sided bags for 99.5% of my travel

When the back cab of the truck is full of luggage and bedding for two people, it is nice to be able to put the rifle in the bed, and roll. Home, to been as far as 1000 miles from home, with the rifle in a Pelican, in the bed. Every weather scenario possible. Rifle, and scope hitting $4k-$5k is just fine inside that case. $200 is cheap for what it does.

Bingo. My rifles donít have the luxury of riding in a trunk or truck can. During the process of a weekend of hunting, there is no telling what will get tossed on top of the guns in the bed. Pelican case keeps them alive and working

I have two of these and couldn't imagine treating one of these cases harsh enough to damage the contents... maybe if it fell off the back of the truck going 75 and tumbled?

You can find a box or container that you want and customize it for your gun, optics, and magazines. Easy but messy.

Looks like a pretty good case. You can YouTube torture test for all these cases. Might be worth looking into for a buyer.
