Re: Eye relief vs tube length
Some scopes are known for that, some worse then others. My 4.5-14 varix III is more tempermental about eye relief at higher powers then my 3.5-10 of the same model leupold. Unless you are needing a higher power scope, look at the conquest 3-9x from Zeiss. Its not absurd priced at all. Now if you are looking at the vxII, and lower line stuff from nikon, then you will have alot harder time with eye relief. Make sure you are looking at scopes towards the $400 range or better. Worst case, for normal rifles, there are offset rings that may let you set the scope back more, however, with Rugers one of a kind mounts, you may be up the creek.
