Thanks John, did they say why it had to be 50mm?

Brent

They "are" supposed to be waterproof when the caps are off. There is a rubber seal inside each turret as I was told.

If they were not sealed, the scope would loose the Nitrogen?

I went with the NXS 8-32/NP-R2.. It seemed like the consensus was that the 5-22x would be sufficient, but knowing my propensity for overkill I went with the higher magnification.. The rifle will be wearing 20MOA tapered rings so hopefully the loss of elevation travel will be a non-issue.. Plus a little "Roy logic".. I'd rather have it and not need it than to want it and not have it.. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
..I already have a Leupold and have been quite happy with the "click it in" method.. So I look forward to trying out this type of range&holdover once I figure out how it works.. When it's said and done I'll put out a summary of my "findings from your average Joe" on my Reviews page.. JiNC
