I have several different scopes that I want to put flip up covers on. What is the best way to measure. Is there a chart that shows sizes by brand of scope?

I donít know. I gave up on them. Theyíre too flimsy. Thereís much better options out there.

But if you have to have them, I believe you can measure the scope and use that as a guide.

Butler Creek covers starting sucking a few years ago and still do.

These aren't cheap, but are very good.

Buying Butler Creeks is like setting dollar bills on fire.

Those Aadmount covers look very good, but $100 will buy a whole bunch of Butler Creeks. I've broken and replaced a few but I'm satisfied with them. I consider them to be consumable items.

I havenít found an economical replacement in that style of cover. My Burris came with some with their name on them that are pretty nice. I doubt itís offered as an aftermarket item. Iíve been getting by with bikini covers for now. My next custom rifle will have the Aadmount covers. I just canít spend that much for the rest of them.

I canít even put them into the consumable category. Iíve been through dozens of them. Iím done wasting my money. Iíll admit that Iím harder on rifles than the average folk, but I canít get through more than a hunt or two with those things. At that point, what is the point?

I remember when it hit me that I was done with them. I was headed to the lease with my family and we stopped by the store to pick up a replacement cover for both ends of the scope on every deer rifle I had. What really got me was when I realized this was becoming an annual ritual. I had done the same the year before. I went ahead and replaced them all, but havenít bought any since. The only ones left are a pair on my White Gold Browning that is rarely taken out of the safe. It was a gift, and is about the only possession of mine that is babied.

I got these when I bought my S&B scope. Best I have tried and or seen. They are built out of a more robust rubber and not flimsy plastic. I haven't seen the Aadmounts before.

^^Those are what came on my NF. In 8 months, I have not managed to tear them up, yet.

Go to Butler Creek home page they give a chart on numerous scope names with the size of the cover to fit.
If that's what you want.

Maybe I'm just lucky, but I've had butler creeks on one of my rifles for close to 10 years and they have survived some pretty tough hunts. For sizing, use their chart to get as close as you can, then try them on your scope on a floor model at academy or bass pro.
