Neoprene scope cover and a Bore-Snake, check it over real well when I get back home before it goes into the safe.

Tape the barrel and I run the butler creek flip covers on the scope and neoprene leupold scope cover and you are good to go. Just remember to remove trigger lock before you fly into a remote lake. Or you’ll be busting the trigger guard off to make the gun usable. 🤬

My rifle just lives wet and dirty. If the guns worth a darn as a sheep rifle, you won't have problems.

I do pay attention to keeping the scope clean and covered and the muzzle stays taped. If a stainless gun needs more than that, I'd be shopping for a new one.

Blued can be a different story. My dads blued 700 had the bolt stop rust up solid on a particularly wet sheep trip a few years ago.

I had the bolt stop rust up/gum up on a 700 as well. 300 winmag, moose hunt, shot a bull, went to load another round and the bolt came out in my hand and the bull was leggin it off through the woods.
