Re: Nightforce 56mm -vs- 50 mm
Sometime this summer I intend on doing a side/side test of 4 or 5 different scopes. I'll have to put them on similar powers to do a fair test, but intend on testing for contrast/resolution/brightness at dawn and dusk.
Leup VX7 4-14 X 50
Leup MK4 8-25 X 50
NF 3-15 X 56
NF 5-22 X56
NF 5-22 X50
So far, I've only looked through the VX7 4-14X50 and NF 3-15X56 very extensively (owned them the longest) and I haven't noticed any difference between the two in low light. Actually, the Leup may be slightly brighter, but that could be due to the fact that it's about 15 years newer too.?
I intend putting the 56 on the big gun (I don't care about weight) and the 50 on the every day rifle that I'll carry while walking alot or may have to go into a scabbard of sorts.
I doubt that this "test" will show much difference, especially between the two 5-22's.
Aim small = Miss small
