Hey everyone, just a quick accessory question.

I just recieved a new scope for a new rifle. It is a Vortex Viper, 6.5-20x 50mm.

I am in the market for butler creek flip up scope covers, and needed a second opinion on the size I THINK I need.

Here are the dimensions, and cover sizes:
Eyepiece dimension: 43.25mm
Butler Creek Eyepiece Size: 43.25 mm, size 18

Objective dimension: 57.7mm
Butler Creek Objective cover: 57.2 mm, size 40

Do these sound like the right size for my scope, or should I look at others?

Thanks for the help everyone!!!

Those looks right to me. If you find the cover is a bit large you can add a layer of tape to the inside of the cover.

When you go to the store to buy your caps you will find the measurements in inches on the package .
