Re: 50mm Objective on a Prairie dog scope
50mm objective lets in more light, and gives you a wider FOV (field of view). I prefer to run a 50-56 obj on all my scopes. My .22's and one of my .17 HMR's have 42's, but everything else has 50's-56's.
I can't see why you would not want to run a scope with an objective larger than 40mm, honestly?
On a Leupy 6.5-20, I'd go with the 50.
