    Hey guys I'm wondering what you guys are using for a hard rifle case? I'm planning ahead for my 7AM. It will have a 30" inch barrel so I'm guessing I'll need a longer than normal case. What are you using and what it total length of your rifles with long barrels? I really like the Starlight cases but I think they are only 52" long. Not sure if that's enough. Thanks

    How long is your barrel? What kind of rifle do you keep in it? Thanks

    Its actually two rifle case and I keep my accumark in it. It has a 26" barrel and I have another 3-4 inches left for a longer barrel.

    My Edge has a 30" barrel + the brake and overall it is 53" long. I have a double hard sided case that I can squeeze it into. It touches the brake and the recoil pad at both ends.

    I have the Pelican case for my 300 win mag. It has a 26 inch barrel, I think it is 51 inches long. The case is 54 inches I think. Pelican makes one that is longer than mine, I think it is 57 inches, so it should be big enough for your rifle. I got mine from Midway.

    Here's what I use: Pelican 1750 case (black)

    Probably the best case and toughest cases on the market. If the US Military and Gov't use them....That tells me that they're pretty dang good.

    I love mine, and haven't had a singel issue with any gun I've put in it yet. Everything fits nice and tight and doesn't move around.
