Re: Need gun case to fit scoped rifle with attached bipod
Len, you seem to have a very definite preference for a soft case, but thought I would chuck this in as well.
I made a case from solid 1 1/2"x 3/4"pine frame with ply wood attached as the outer cover. Both top and bottom halves are indentical. The interior is a foam base lining with eggshell foam cut to fit the shape of the rifle then glued as the next layer. (eggshell in Oz, don't know if it is the same in the US.) When the case is shut and latched, the rifle is held quite firmly in suspension as it were.
It seems to protect the rifle really well when in transport, and one does get a certain satisfaction from making something like this.
