2.5-10 Nightforce 24mm vs 32mm...?
My first time here. I'm not a real long range hunter (yet), as I've only started hunting / shooting again recently after a long time away from it, actually since I was a kid. Anyway, I've got a Weatherby ultealight in 270wby mag that I want to plant one of those NF's on and I was wondering how much is gained by moving up to the 32mm over the 24mm?
The last two years I have used a 1.5-5x20 vxIII on a 7x57 and low light performance never seemed to be an issue. Where i do most of my hunting, in PA, I've not experienced a problem with not being able to see during legal hours.
The big question for me is the exit pupil as far as head placement goes. Does it get uncomfortable or difficult to use, keep in alignment on moving game, when the exit pupil is down to 2.5 @ 10x. Much different from 3.3 on the 32mm?
Is there much difference in resolution between the two scopes?
Keep in mind, for me, long range right now is 3-400yds!!!
Almost forgot to add, this will be my travel gun, hopefully out west and to AK.
Sorry if these questions are basic. I haven't had a chance to look through either one as there is no NF dealer close by.
Thanks for any suggestions!
