    What kind of soft and hard gun cases are you guys using for your longer rifles. I have a Weatherby Mk5 Accumark I need specifically a soft case for and it will not fit in a standard 48" scoped rifle case. I believe I need a 52" case at the minimum. Where can I find one? Thanks

    You should check these things out! They are really nice soft cases with good padding. It has a pretty substantial zippers and nice size pocket on the one side. They can embroider anything you want on the pocket. My cousin has one. When I get the money around, I plan on getting one. His rifle is around 56" in length and fits with ease.

    I use a drag bag.... there are many makes out there. Plus, most come with a shooting mat and plenty of pockets to stow extra gear.

    They are really nice. I was very impressed with the workmanship and quality of padding. It is thinker than it looks in the pics. The cloth on the inside is very soft.

    I was ready to buy the case that LT mentioned, but I don't need one that long, just a bit longer than most available. I do thing the shoot-long cases are well built from everything I've heard about them. My rifle doesn't have a really long tube. It measures 49.5" overall. I bought this case expecting something cheap, to get me by until I saw one I really liked. I'm keeping it. I was really impressed.
