Extra Long Gun Case?

Does anyone know where I can get an reasonable priced extra long scoped gun case?
My current rig is 54Ē.
I donít need a $300-$500 airline - bulletproof case. I just need something to go the range. Plastic is fine.

Thanks,

Dick,
I have an AM similar to yours. I bought the muzzle loader case you describe and it just seems to be too narrow for the large turrets on my NXS Night Force scope. The case puckers out severely at the turrets when shut. Do I just need to cut the foam out here to reduce the pressure.
Thanks,
Jett

Jett:

That's what I did with mine. I just closed the case for a few minutes and it left an impression in the foam and then I just cut out small circles part way into the foam to relieve the pressure on the turrets and I've been using it like that for 3+ years now with no problems. By cutting only part way into the foam everything is still protected pretty well.

With a scope with standard type turrets there would be no problem but with a big scope like the NF scopes the turrets compact the foam quite a but.

I now have a 32" barrel plus the large 5 port Painkiller brake on it and the gun still fits fine.
