I've been searching through discussions and reviews on double rifle cases and it seems that some cases, the SKB double rifle in particular, can hold two unscoped rifles but not scoped ones. I'm going to be flying from CA to WY later this year for an antelope hunt and am bringing two rifles. One of the rifles is a GAP in an AICS stock, the other is a bone stock Sig SHR 970. Both rifles have scopes and I'd prefer to case the rifles with the scopes attached.

If anyone has experience with using double rifle cases for scoped rifles I'd be grateful for suggestions on the best ones. Thanks.

The SKB double rifle case will hold two scoped rifles. I traveled with my F-Class and a Cross the course rifle, both with scopes, with no issues, other than the heavy weight in total (about 60pounds).

    +1 on the SKB. I have flown with 2 scoped rifles in mine...fits pretty good and a sturdy case.
