    I'm currently waiting for my Edge to be built. I'm starting to pick some things for it here and there. Now, where in the heck do you find a case to put it in? Near as I figure, it will end up somewhere close to 52". I haven't found anything that will fit a rifle over 46". I don't really care if it is a soft or hard case. I'd prefer soft though. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    56" soft case

    Contact Bill Bandlow at info@wrbusa.com. I just bought one of these 56" soft cases for my 338 Edge, which is 53" long overall, and it fits perfectly.

    RC Series Scoped Rifle Cases
    Item# RCSB$46.75Sizes: RC45SB-45in longRC48SB-48in long(+1.80)RC56SB-56in long(+2.70)

    I got my 338 Edge from Shawn Carlock the first of April and it came in a 60" aluminum case from Impact Case & Container. That aluminum case is great for flying or for shipping the rifle, but too big & bulky to fit in the back seat of my truck when I go to the range. It took me over a month to find the soft case.

    My DE 338 is in a TAc Force Stryker 62 Drag Bag. This is one tough bag ! Heaps of protection and Shawn is a fan of them as well. Check out his new DVD.

    Cheers

    Look at the Pelican 1750 Cases too. They will cost you around $230.00, not cheap but worth every penny.

    I heard that Cabelas sells a case(s) which are listed for blackpowder rifles. They are reportedly long & large enough for big varmint rifles. Prices are supposed to be pretty good too. I'm not sure if the info was regarding soft or hard cases but it might be worth checking out.

    Shotgun cases are 52". If I had funds to have an Edge built I wouldnt scrimp on a case. Good luck with your Edge.
