As some of you know, LR hunting is becoming quite popular and i saw a need to develop a long range rifle scabbard that would fit LR rigs and also protect them especially the scope areas. Here is one that I made for a wolf hunter here in central Idaho and I've made a couple of them for myself and family friends. I make them with a lining of waterproof neoprene between the leathers and a section of aircraft aluminum is around the scope area. This particular one fits a remington sendero with a nightforce NXS 50mm.

Nice Work.

I have a .223 with a big bell scope that I noticed did not fit as well in my Hunter Scabbard.

Do you recommend these be slung butt to the rear, or forward?

That looks really nice. The cordura one I use hold my 44mm scoped rifle well but yours is way more classy. I'd love to have one of those for my rig.

2rocky, sorry about the late response as I cannot get photos to post so I tried it on a work computer. I like to carry the scabbard in a verticle position. Easyy to grab it on a dismount and doesn't get under you stirrups and they don't get hung up on brush as much. Here is a couple of photos of different positions.
