Just go make the purchase!

You'll hear nothing bad about the NXSs with that reticle.

I doubt that the 56mm would be "that" much advantage over the 50mm objective. However, I've personally got my eye on the 56mm. It might not be that much better but it surely isn't any worse.;) and the price is the same.

i ahve the 8x32x56 with the np r1 retical for my f class rifle. this is an amazing scope i never thought that you could get a retical with 1 moa increments. you wont be disipointed in your scope. i am thinking of buying another one in the near future for my other custom and thinking 5.5x20 for hunting.

You won't go wrong with a Nightforce. I currently own 3 NF scopes.

3.5-15x56 w/NP-1RR
5.5-22X56w/NP-1RR
8-32X56 w/NP-R2

I'm actually thinking about buying a 5.5-22X50 in the next few months. I guess I'm a NF addict.

Mate just brought one for his long range cannon impressed with it. Note at higher power 56mm is an advantage as need good light especially if price same. weight difference is irrelevant only. If the weight is considered to be an issue give up hunting or get fit as most rifles weigh bugger all and the heavier ones are better anyway - stable, strong with real bits on them.

Regards Mark.
