What about strength? Stiffness?

Re: 1" tube or 30MM

You are 100% correct Jon A. You do get stronger materials in a 30mm due the larger diamater of the tube.

Ironworker, you will not want to hear our price ($1446.00, choice of reticle). There are many places that sell them much cheaper, so I would look at some others. The reason for our price is that we are a real small business (wife & I), so right now we can only buy 1 at a time directly from Nightforce, instead of large quantities at a discount. They are an outstanding scope. Are they worth the extra $500 or so for them over a Nightforce? Only you can really answer that question.

Re: 1" tube or 30MM

My first scope was a NF 3.5x12x50 30mm tube. I traded that for a Swarovski 1". The only difference I noticed was in the clarity at distance...the Swarovski far surpassed the NF, but that was ten years ago.
I currenly use a S&B 4x16x50 with a 34mm tube, in the open desert.
Bottom line go for the 30mm or bigger tube....its definately worth it.

Re: 1" tube or 30MM

Is 20 power Nikon thge same as 20 power Leupold,or buris?You know field of view.I went Varmint hunting with a B&L 6x24,Blew several Varmints up but squirrles at 500yds looked like dots! I don't want to spend more than $850.00 bucks.Do you have any recomendations? Thanks Larry [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

Re: 1" tube or 30MM

Iron Worker,
I have a 6-284 as does my friend,his has
a b&l 6x24 and mine has a Leupold 8.5x25
long range. if you are looking at a target
at 1000yds.there is absolutely no comparison
the leupold is brighter has better color
resolution. another friend has a 243 ackley
with a nightforce 5.5x22 and it is quite
comparable optically but not price wise.
