    This the one I have. It is good for storage and putting in truck for a hunt. I would not use it to put it on an airplane.

    Plano Moulding Plano Black Rifle/Shotgun Case w/Heavy Duty Latches & Hinges 130102 FREE S&H 130102. Plano Molding Gun Cases.


    PS: I keep my laser range finder, Kestral 3500, cleaning rod, patches, oils, bipod, lens cleaning stuff and empty Berger bullet box with all my allen wrenches inside it with my rifle and scope.

    My backpack & sleeping bag won't fit inside though.

    Cabela's Deluxe Aluminum guncase. It was the only thing that would fit my gun for the smith to ship it to me (that was readily available). It is a really nice case and great attention to detail.

    Pelican if you are wiling to spend the money. BassPro's top of the line case is a tan Pelican case which can sometimes be had for a discount. If you travel at all most of the other cases are inferior to the Pelican's. You can customize the foam for optics and other items to fit with the rifle, unless you are looking for lightweight these are hard to beat.
