Re: 50mm or 56mm ?

Your origional question "what is better a50mm
obj.or a 56mm obj." my question is what are
you using it for ??? If I was packing it on
a light carry gun I would take the 50mm or
smaller (40mm),if it was on my 24lb. 1000yard
gun that I dont pack around give me the 56mm
or bigger (80mm).Quality of glass is an issue
also, on the Nightforce there might not be
that big of a difference between the two
because they use quality glass and it is only
6mm diference.if you take El Chinero quality
of glass it is junk if it is 40mm or 80mm.
You can take a Leupold 6.5x20 40mm and put
it next to a Leupold 6.5x20 50mmLR with the
30mm tube,in mid-day light you dont notice
that much difference but at dawn or dusk at
20 power absolutely no comparison the 50mm is
better it just all depend's on what your
need's are
