Nightforce NXS 50mm vs 56mm

Hey guys I've got a 338 edge being built on a Sendero platform for hunting and shooting at 1k plus. My question- Is the 56mm obj. on a 5.5x22 that much better than the 50mm. Does it justify the extra bulk ? I plan on carrying it as much as possible. Thanks.

    Nightforce claims 14 more minutes of light with the 56 over the 50.

    14 minutes?? That is a stretch. I don't think you get 14 min from a cheap simmons to a Swarovski. Maybe three or four minutes. I'd get the 50 if it were me. We've got the new high speed turrets in most of the popular reticles.
