My daughter shoots small bore Olympic style competitions with an Anschutz 1903 Jr rifle from our local club. We will soon be buying the same model rifle for her (because the 54.30 is out of our price range). Because of the state we live in I want her to use a viola case to carry the rifle in pieces (stock, bolt, and barrel/action) while carrying between locations. A discreet case and her rolling suitcase with range gear will receive much less attention than a long Plano gun case.
With properly cut foam, each piece should be protected from harm. With proper care during assembly/disassembly, and torquing the bedding screws correctly, there shouldn't be a problem with this scheme.
I've come to this forum based on recommendations from Mike Kupari and Larry Correia in a LTUE15 video. Please give me feedback on the drawbacks of this scheme.
