Scope Covers for my scope

I am gonna buy some Butler Creek scope covers for my Leupold VX-3 6.5-20x50. Is there anybody who has covers for this scope that can tell me the sizes they use? I have figured a couple sizes from the dimensions listed on the measurements on the website but just looking to see if everybody elses sizes meet my guesstimates. Thanks

    Why don't you just put the Leupolds on?

    In other words, you are cheap.......

    I can't blame you, I like the BC's better myself.

    lol That is correct. This long range stuff is an expensive endeavor and if I can save some money on something that doesn't need to be expensive, I won't. Seems like the Leupolds are like 90-100 if I remember right, and the BC's are roughly 20.

    ...and the BC's are thermoformed in China BTW. Not that it matters. Cheap is cheap. I relate to that, The Aluminia Covers are around 50 an edition.

    Probably made in China too. Leupold is secretive about 'where it's made'.....
