Looking at purchasing a Leupold Mark IV this week. It's in-between getting the 5-25x56 or the 7-35x56. Application I would use it in is both hunting and competition. My personal opinion is the 7-35x56 is the no brainer for the advantages of the magnification and the small loss in field of view...
A) What is the length of the scope from the end of the rear ocular to the turret housing (rings bump against)?
B) What is the length of the turret housing?
C) Turret housing to the end of the front objective?
D) A+B+C = total overall length
