Re: 4-16X50 vs. 6-24X50
Based solely on magnification range, go with the 6-24.
There is very little difference between 4x and 6x, so that nullifies discussion of the lower magnification range. Whereas there is a big difference between 16x and 24x on the higher end. As a result, the 6-24 would be more versitile.
I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!
