Re: Scope Magnification
If you compare the two, I bet that the 15x on the 5.5-22 will be brighter than the 3.5-15. Simply because the 15x is toward the middle of the power range and the 15x on the smaller scope is at the top of the power range. Maybe someone can chime in and agree or disagree on this theory.
