6-24 is the magnification (it can magnify from 6 times to 24 times, you should have an adjusting dial) and the 44 means the main lens is 44mm in diameter.

there are two parts to any scope's numbers. the part before the "x" is the zoom factor in your case its adjustable meaning you can zoom anywhere from 6 times to 24 times in on the target. the second part is after the "x" it is the diameter of the objective lens (the scopes front lens... pretty much th biggest lens in the scope) it determines the field of view, all you need to know about the objective lens the bigger the objective lens the better (becuase you can see more). on your scope you have a 44mm objective lens

dam someone beat me to it

Nah, man, there is math involving the aperture and the power, but it goes like this:

Aperture / power = exit diameter (mind my terminology)

The exit diameter is the diameter of the image generated by the scope, which gives you an idea of how easy it will be to align your eye with the system, as well as how well it will function in low light conditions.

That is, if you have a really high power scope, you will have a small exit pupil (Yeah, I'm not sure of what you call it), which will make it difficult to obtain a sight picture, and means the image will be dim if it's dark out.

Note, however, that an exit pupil in excess of 7mm doesn't give better low-light performance, because <i>your</i> pupil can't get bigger than that, and the light that was gathered for your use in excess of that is simply wasted.
*****************************

Now, we note that CanonCreator is rambling on about who-knows-what... but it is interesting to note that you <i>can</i> estimate range using your typical "30-30" reticle by adjusting the power; though you'll require math to use this procedure for stuff other than the (16", IIRC) deer that the reticle was designed for.
Check your owner's manual, I forget the specifics.

And, no, I don't know why they call it that. Maybe something to do with the MOA separation at 1x.

What kind was it and what are you using it for?
I just got a Nikon 4.5-14x40 scope to go on top of my Savage .223 rifle. Any more magnification and they get really expensive for a decent one.

I'm weird, I know it, you don't need to tell me.
