    What about strength? Stiffness?

    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.

    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.

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]

    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.
