Need recomendations for hard gun case

Fellow Members,

I have a new custom on its way and need recommendations for a hard case that will be used for airline travel. I have performed a search and found some info, but is some what dated. The two options I am contemplating thus far are a Pelican or Starlight case. If anyine has any experience with either, please provide your opinion. Also, if there is somethoing else to consider please list.

Thanks in advance!

I've used Pelican cases and never had a problem.

I'm a big fan of the pelican cases. What is your rifles overall length. More than Likely, a pelican 1750 will fit the bill.

R.R., I had an expensive aluminum case that was beaten to a pulp on a flight from Phx to San Antonio. Got a SKB and they can hardly scratch it. Buy one you like, but aluminum dents easily. Good luck
