Default Recommendations for Airline Travel Rifle Case

Anyone have a recommendation for single scoped rifle case that will hold up to more than a few airline trips? I have tried both Birchwood Casey AlumaLock and Pelican 1750. I had the Birchwood Casey break on 1st trip and Pelican 1750 break on 3rd trip.
Thanks

If they broke a Pelican they did it on purpose. Americase makes some extremely nice cases super heavy though.

+1. My SKB is extremely tough. Have traveled with it many times and not even a scrape on it.
