After some searching I found a sturdy case from Plano worked out perfectly for what I needed. It is the Plano 36" takedown case (photo is the stock one from their website). It fits perfectly in the trunk of the car (which is the exact width of the case)

Once I got it I started trying to figure out how to fit the rifle in it with the scope and mount I planned on getting and the Harris bipod that I had already bought. After spending a good 20 minutes of turning the rifle all around in different configurations to come up with this in the end:

As mentioned above, I purchased a Harris bipod model HBRMS. It is 6-9", swivels, and has notched legs. Since I did not have a sling swivel on the front I bought a cheap quick release picatinny one from Amazon which required a new nut from a hardware store to retain tightness. This mod was cheaper than buying a higher priced model. As some people might notice, I had to slide the bipod back to fit it in the box, then slide it forward to use it.
