Thread: Butler Creek flip up scope caps.

  1. #1

    Butler Creek flip up scope caps.

    Just purchased a Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16x42.

    Anyone know what size scope caps I will need...?

    Cheers.

    Don't do it! They break in a heartbeat these days!

    Don't bother mate, they'll break within a week, just do a search on here!

    If the scope comes with bikini covers, just cable tie them on to the scope, been doing this for a few years now and it works great, plus it doesn't make that daft sound the butler creeks do when they pop open which can spook the deer.

    I am not trying to be smart as it wouldn't suit me. How quick can these be opened say if a deer just appears of of now where as the sometimes do! This is one reason I have never used this method as in woodland stalking sometimes you only have a split second. I can see the benefits whilst being used in an open hill stalk.Thanks,Glendine.

    You can get them off in a few of seconds with practice, obviously it will be a bit slower if the deer are very close and you want to be super quiet! I also loop mine round the scope tube and over onto my turret caps to stop them rattling around.

    Your welcome mate,

    This is how I attached mine, you can see how they are held in place under tension by the scope turrets without rattling around.
