I forgot what mine are. Call Vortex and they will tell you which ones to get.

The problem is that some people say the size they recommend don't fit well .
The fact that the caps are made to a size range that overlaps makes it very difficult to choose as you don't know how much the rubber will stretch or not .
It would be better to say which size fits which model scope .

Ok I had a chance to look at mine.

The eye piece says 14-16-17. The other one says 39-40-43. I don't have the boxes they came in, but if I remember correctly the boxes said #16 & #43.

Mine fit fine. Hope this helps.

Thanks but that does not help because that's Butler creek's site sizes and they will not sell me anything god knows why .
Vortex has different sizing on their site to Butler creek making it very hard indeed to compare .

I got mine in Walmart. Don't sporting good stores sell them near you? If they do ask if you can buy them and take them home and try them. If they don't fit take them back and try another size. Can you take your scope to the store and try them in the store.

If only it were that easy mate. We don't have anything like walmart .
Only actual gunshops sell this kind of stuff and I only have one , an hour away and they don't have any to sell anyway and if they did it would cost twice as much . Most of my stuff has come in from the US over the last 30 years , but now we are being cut off by US more and more . I don't understand why .
