I'm wanting to purchase the SS 1-4x24 HD MRAD scope and need a few precise dimensions. I have a Ruger 77/44 mag that I want to put this scope on and I need to know if it will fit before I pull the trigger on one.

I need the overall Mounting length and Eyepiece O.D. for bolt clearance.

I looked my best and could not find any specifics.

Is the turret adjustment 100% reliable?

And what size butler creek caps?

It would be nice if SWFA had this info available on the order page. Thanks.

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

I'll try to help out here. 

Over all length of scope is app. 10 1/4" 

Distance between ocular housing and the rear of the turret is app 2 1/4", but you have 2" to comfortably place a scope ring.  

From the front of the turret housing to the end of the scope is app. 3 3/8" 

OD of ocular housing is 1.725. 

From the rear of the ocular housing to the end of the scope is 6.80".

Not sure this is what your looking for, but let me know if you need any more intel and I'll try to provide it. 

Here's a picture of my Rem. 700 and the 1-4x SS.

BC caps

Eye piece: 19
Objective: 02A 

Don't know, but I assume that the SS tracks well and is reliable. I've been very satisfied with the scope overall, but in all honestly, I haven't had wrung out the turrets.

I know Ruger's can be a little tricky with scope mounting, but I honestly can't imagine that you will have any trouble with the SS. 

Your welcome and let us know how you make out.

The main issue is the bolt handle clearance. At 43.8mm it will be close, I probably won't be able to fit BC caps on it but that's not a deal breaker. I'd rather not spend the money on a new bolt handle and installation.
