Re: NXS 50mm or 56mm???

With my current rifle sporting a lupy 6.5-20x50 M1 turrets I find it a snug fit in the pack unless the pack doesn't have much in it. I can't remember the model of Eberlestock pack I have off hand but its a smaller one. I'm looking to upgrade to a larger Eberlestock though.

That is probably the same as what I have. Not sure what the -A1 is all I remember is it is an X1 and it is a smaller one.

I'll venture to guess that the "A" is for archery since it is advertised to carry a bow or rifle or both???

I'll also add it is not the objective that hangs up its the turrets and bipod that make it tight.

If you have cheek issues with a 56 a 50 wont cure it. Its 3mm diff.
Lightgathering? Either one you can shoot so far past legal time its a moot point.
Ive had a few of both and I buy on which one I can get a deal on etc. because otherwise there is no real difference. The 56 is a tad better at 2am shooting coyotes on a wheatfield but the 50 works for that also. Its a tossup unless you have a $200 set of rings that wont fit 56s.

Re: NXS 50mm or 56mm???

I agree with the cheek weld comments. I have a thin face and I am a stock crawler so cheek weld is always an issue. It was more of an issue with shotguns and clay targets. With rifles I am always looking for the lowest mounts and smallest objective that will do the trick but I am now starting to consider looking into restocking or at least picking stocks for projects/builds that will eliminate this issue. Glad to see this thread I am thinking about a NXS.
