    I'm going black bear hunting in Alaska, April 27th, on Prince Of Wales island. I wanted to take my 338 Edge but I can't find a gun case long enough to fit it. Anyone have an idea where I can get a good airline-tough case? Preferably aluminum.

    I think Cabela's sells a hard aluminum case for muzzleloaders that would be long enough for you. Can't tell you the model # thou.

    7STDUBBERU, I've been looking for a solid long case too. Checked the link you provided and not one bad review out of a total of 9 reviews. Thanks for posting the link.

    Why not just remove the rifle stock for shipping and use a standard hard case?

    I've got 2 of the cases from Cabela's and they were made by ICC. Even had the ICC paperwork in them.:)

    Thanks for that piece of info SS7. I wondered if they weren't the same case. They are less money direct from ICC.
