But you might also want to consider a take-down case. Even most "non-take-down" rifles can be easily taken apart to fit in a shorter case, which makes carrying the darn case a lot easier, both around airports and in vehicles. Bolt-action rifles can be taken out of their stocks, or buttstocks can be removed from two-piece stocked rifles, and usually won't lose their zero if put together tightly again. I had my 2-gun take-down custom made by Bear Track Cases (43 Dunham Road, Rolling Hills, WY 82637, 307-436-2814). It's even stouter than the Americase, and a little lighter.
