Rife Case Recommendation for Tactical Scope

I am looking for a good carrying case for a new hunting rifle.

I purchased a Remington 700 with a Leupold 4.5-14x 50 LR. The scope has M1 windage and M1 Elevation knobs which are kind of acqward in storing away... Are there any cases that "allow you more room" for these type of windage and elevation knobs.

I've been looking @ Pelican, but am open to anything... I would like your opinions. Please advise.

As always, thank you...

I prefer and use a Pelican 2 rifle case, but only put one rifle in it.
That gives me plenty of room for big scopes/long barrels and still have room for a bipod, cleaning rod, ect.

Re: Rife Case Recommendation for Tactical Scope

The pelican stuff is nice for sure..But for long barreled guns and tall turrets I have found this case to work just great.
6mmBR.com Reviews of Reloading tools, Bipods Harris Pod-loc, Cleaning Supplies, Redding Wilson Dies, K&M Tools, Neck turning Tools, Shooting Accessories and supplies.

It was the only thing that would fit 28" tubes that did not cost $300.00.

I am the first to say that if you run over this gun case with a gun in side, Probably not going to make it! But to keep it safe while traveling back and forth, works great.

If you are going to travel the either a storm case or a Pelican is the way to go.
They are a bit pricey but well worth the money.
