Rifle case suggestions HELP

I am looking at buying a new case and would like your thoughts. I have a CZ457 Varmint and a Ruger 10/22 that are currently being carried in cheap soft cases. I am worried they might get damaged from sliding around or banging into something. I feel like a double hard case might be the way to go. Are the Pelican cases worth the money? Are the Eylar cases comparable to the Pelican cases? Should I keep them in separate single gun cases? I would like some help figuring this all out... Also, is the foam in these cases good or do I need to replace with better stuff? Should I custom cut for the gun? Thoughts....

I use these and have never had a problem. Can’t comment on the hard case.

Yeah I use the Savior cases and throw the rifles in the bed of the truck. Have not had a problem.

Double cases get heavy and are really bulky if just taking 1 rifle with you. Also, if not secured right in them some will let the rifles hit each other.

So, I would go with 2 singles myself.

I have something similar and have carried two scoped precision rifles in there with no problem. Hard cases are nice but they're heavy.
I have a Pelican case with the foam cut out for a specific rifle and have never taken it to the range, it's heavy as sh*t. (The case)

I checked them out and it appears they are for AR style/tactical guns. The CZ with scope is more of a hunting/target rifle and the 10/22 with red dot is mostly just a plinker. Are you using them for non-tactical gun carry? They look like nice bags. I have a Bulldog that is similar for my AR.

I use the Savior cases for everything from my mall ninja loadout to my Han Solo Blaster. even shotguns sometimes.

the rifle cases don't care what's in them. kinda like my ex gf now that I think about it.

This.
I have a hard case with custom foam for my RPR and is it heavy as hell. But I will be traveling with it at some point, so I got the custom hard case. Otherwise, I would use something a lot lighter.

Agreed. I use them for everything. Scope or dot or irons. Doesnít matter. Can stuff a few pistols and 2 rifles in the same bag. Gets a bit heavy, but easier than multiple bags for me.

Are you talking about the Savior American Classic double?
