Default Replacement egg crate foam for rifle cases?

Anyone have a source that has replacement egg crate foam in rifle case lengths for less than the price of buying a new case?

I've used the foam they sell at Hobby Lobby with good results.

IIRC I bought some from WALMART, think it was mattress foam.

I tried looking for foam on their website and didn't have much luck finding useful results. Any chance you have a P/N or item number?

What a great idea!

Outstanding idea but I 've tired of the pelican case bulk and weight for my range use. I truly don't need airline anti crush type cases anymore.

My decision to buy this case...when on sale at $30shipped in new condition , they are everything I need in a case. Midway below, has them and they can be had on internet as well...shop around.

For a soft case I use the ones the CMP sells. Will fit any of our surplus rifles, even an A4 with scope.

I took the memory foam mattress that Hurricane Michael ruined for us and cut it up for gun cases. Gave what I didn't use away, works great though.
