WalMart, or Dick's(in my area), or some other large mass merchant usually has a pretty cheap plastic case they sell for around $10 to $14. I usually pick up one of those. And they usually come with a box. Or ask the clerk for one with the box.

A rifle is to valuable to take a chance with. And I have seen some real screw ups with a rifle that is shiped in a cardboard box, regardless of how well it is wrapped, and how well it fits the box. Even if it is the original box. I saw a Mark V Weatherby broken in two at the stock in a cardboard box once, and it was wrapped and packaged very well. Cardboard is just not strong enough. IMO. Tom.
