Subsonic, You did say 8x56, right, the 56mm objective is the reason you can pull so much light in, american scope makers don't make 56mm objectives, cause we can't hunt legally at night where a huge objective might come in handy, as they do in europe, that why europeon scope makers produce the 56mms. My son's Burris 6-24X-44mm w/Mil-dot reticle on top of his 22-250 is an excellent scope as far as brightness, clarity, etc. and is one of my favorite scopes, It'll compare against any europeon scope, I'm certain of that.

I liver in the USA and hunting at night or low light conditions is very important.. what do you mean we can't hunt at night> Where you from? We hunt Coyotes at night or early mornings and late evgs...
Deer is not the only game on earth my friend...

We NEED 56mm scopes here like REAL bad... setting up to hunt Yotes when it starts to get dark and the yotes are comming out at around 6pm... you need EVERY little bit you can... at 450 yards out, I need my 6.5-20x50mm Leopold turned up...
at this time of day and with 19x a 50mm will kill a 40mm.... a 56mm will kill a 50mm... as long as they have simuler quality optics..
I've compared a Nightforce 8-32x56 to my leopld at around 20x and the Nightforce is a little sharper and brighter... at 10x they are close..


I don't understand why scope makers are stuck in the dark ages, by god make us some 80mm scopes and qite ripping us off...... make us some rings to fit em on our rifles..

There is lots of game to hunt in low light conditions... even Deer can be hunted at dusk and dawn, where they come out the most.

Donham if you want an 80mm objective all you have to do is place an order with U.S. OPTICS they will even give you a 35mm tube or bigger. But you will pay for it [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: New Leupold vs. Burris

Burris scopes do appear brighter and seem to have better color rendition than others under $1000. It is not really a brightness issue that a light meter could read, I think. That said, the gun tests light meter test sounds like BS to me, but what do I know.

I bought the Burris XTR because I thought it was the best under $800 tactical scope. It went back twice for issues. Now it is fine.

Larry and I didn't see eye to eye on this one, but he did get it figured out.
