    Rifle Hard Case

    Hey,

    I am thinking of buying a Plano rifle hard case, does anyone know what the difference Plano 1511 (https://www.huntingandfishing.co.nz/...odel-1511.html) and 1531 (https://www.huntingandfishing.co.nz/...odel-1531.html) is?

    Also does anyone have any other suggestions for quality hardcases (budget around $150)

    Thanks!

    It looks as if the 1511 is a tapered shape at the muzzle end and 2" higher, while the 1531 is rectangular and not so high so potentially a tighter fit if you've got a high scope.

    The one I've got doesn't like the target turrets on the vx3 had to cut the foam out to fit in, only problem I've had with my plano case though. Keep a track of the locking 'tabs' can pop off and go a surprisingly long way

    Depends on how solid a hard case you want, Supercheap Toolpro Safe Case is definitely a step up in strength but around the same budget, but are heavier and larger
