50mm or 56mm objective?
I plan on buying a nightforce nxs 3.5-15x rifle scope, problem is i cant decide which one to go with 50 or 56 mm, they are both the same price, so that isn't an issue. I know that a bigger objective lets in more light therefore better in low light situations, but how much more? and is the added height that is needed worth it? the gun i am getting to go under it does have an adjustable comb... as I'm writing this im being swayed towards the 56... but still I would greatly appreciate your input, as Im am exceptionally green to LRH and everything it entails. Also, any input on the available reticles (NP-R1/2, MLR and Mil dot, although im not very partial to the mildot). oh yeah, there website doesnt say which pane or lens the reticle is on, any help there would also be appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Evan
