    I bought a 54"drag bag case from mid way about a year ago. It is a nice case and well paded with a lot of storage. As for a hard case that long, look at the pelican 1770. I dont know of any long double gun hard cases, someone must make them. Also cabeleas has the long aluminum cases.

    Your welcome. I already had a 48" bag,fits normal rifles. I bought te long one for one rifle that was just a little to long for other cases. I just hope it will be long enough for the 338AM I have on order from Kirby!

    Thank you both for posting this. I too am in the market for the same item for my .270 AI with 30" barrel + MB, it's just shy of 55". Before this post, I was leaning towards http://www.prone2success.com/pouchside.jpg with hesitation as it does not seem to have the sufficient padding for the required protection during transport to/from range/hunting area.

    Looks like Midway's (MidwayUSA Sniper Drag Bag Scoped Rifle Case) is the ticket!

    Thanks again!

    I have the Midway bag and it is a pretty nice bag. If you hold it by the carrying handle the case tips all the way forward and the barrel wants to drag on the ground. I usually just use the shoulder strap to eliminate the problem.

    For long cases these look nice too.
