Butler Creek Scope Covers

Does anybody know where I can find a sizing chart for the Butler Creek Scope Covers? I know they usually have a booklet in the store that tell you the exact set you need, but I can't find this info online. I need covers for a Nikon Prostaff 3x9-40mm. This is the older version, not the 2011 model.

Re: Butler Creek Scope Covers

I just bought some today. There are charts inside the packaging. If you measure your objective and eyepiece diameters (preferably with calipers), I can tell you what size you need.

Maybe this will help:

If you don't know the size of your scope, a lot of times you can find measurements for it on the manufacturer's website.

Dont trust the # on the pack. Go somewhere that you can take it out of pack carefully and try before you buy.

Re: Butler Creek Scope Covers

I too try before buying

It may be a poor choice of words but I am smart enough to understand what you meant.

This is true. The numbers lied about one of the four covers I bought, so I'll be exchanging it. Ironically, it was the one for which the number most closely corresponded (within .001").

I guess it depends on your proximity to the shop that sells them. For me, it's much easier to make a return visit than to pack up the rifles and take them in for a test fit.
