    Hi all
    Recently getting back into shooting, and dug out my BSA Ultra. Fitted a lovely MTC viper 10x44 and something I didn't take into consideration before purchase is the width of it! At 4 inches exactly, it won't fit inside the majority of hard gun cases...so question is, what do other people use to offer their rifles and wide scopes some protection?

    Thanks for any answers.

    Hard case ideally. The Ultra is only 32 inches long so a short case would be good. Found a great one made by flambeau except its only 4 inches deep after the eggshell foam is removed! Shame the manufacturers don't give a bit of extra room inside the case.

    I had an s400 and a scorpion fit inside a flambeau hard case...both with mtc vipers on...the foam does give and protect the gun fine...

    The storm rifle case im3220 is pretty deep. I use this for travel abroad. But it depends on what your budget is and how big you want something.

    I use a Peli 1720 for my Daystate with an MTC Viper fixed 10x-42 scope. the foam has been cut and this case is air freight complient. It is a hard case, but I use a soft case (BSA)for carrying the rig at comps.
