Plano introducing the Element line of long gun cases that are purpose-built for hard use. These are the newest version of their popular Field Locker series, which is a top choice for serious shooters and enthusiasts who need protection for their firearms yet still have the ease of mobility and portability. 

All Field Locker case designs are tested to meet or exceed Mil-Spec recommendations. The shock-resistant protection that surrounds the firearm also extends to the accessories stored inside. Each case has additional room for accessory storage for gear such as ammunition, magazines or optics, and everything is held in place with high density customizable foam and wide dual stage draw down latches. 

Every Field Locker Element is equipped with a continuous, molded in Dri-Loc gasket for waterproof construction and pressure release valve for drastic temperature and altitude changes and are airline approved. The Double Long Gun case also has Easy-Glide Wheels and the largest internal dimensions of any Plano case to date. 

The new Element series stacks evenly and comfortably with any of the other Field Locker series of cases and can fit almost any padlock through the steel reinforced padlock gates. Everything is held in place inside the case with a high density customizable foam insert, allowing it to fit any rifle and accessories.

High-Tech Handloading

I now keep all my ammunition-creation data on a computer. Sure, I’ll make notes when working up a new load or tweaking an existing one, but ultimately my data is stored digitally. Since my loading room is only steps from my computer, the transition from written to digital data has been easy for me. Now that I’m using the handloading app from RCBS, it’s even easier, and it also makes recreating my favorite loads when I’m at the loading bench more convenient.
