Butler Creek Flip Up Cap (Objective)

I have a Leupold 4.5 x 14 x 50 LR and am having a difficult time finding out what size Butler Creek Flip Up (Objective) size that I am needing. I have read the Butler Creek charts from their website and I am still somewhat confused.

Do any of you have an idea of the size # for this cap?
Help is always appreciated.

Thanks guys.

EF

Your 50mm objective converts to roughly 1.96 inches (see attached conversion table in link)so I would think #8 would fit. If in doubt then shoot Butler an email and I'm sure they can tell you.

If I were you I would get the leupold aluminum flip up caps. They are kinda spendy but they are great protection for your scope and they lay all the way down when open.

Re: Butler Creek Flip Up Cap (Objective)

I'd go with the Leupold version as well. They seem to be very well made. I switched to them.

But to help you, can you go to someplace that has that scope close to you that carries the Butler's. Just get that same model scope and try them on till you find the right one. That's what I did..Theres a website that lists the right size for about all scopes out there but I can't find it.
