I am looking to spend about 2k on a safe and i *think* i have narrowed it down to these two. The SF keeps me with within budget and is slightly larger while the BF provides more protection but is slightly smaller and cost a little more. What are your thoughts?

I have the 6030 don't expect to get all they say into it,unless you have all lever actions. Rifles with scopes have to sit out a bit from the rest. with 50mm scopes I can get 5 varmints on one side. Expect about half of what is claimed.
