Re: scope help.

As a rule of thumb, the bigger the hole the more light comes in........

Re: scope help.

In my experience, the 56mm ain't much good on a big critter huntin' gun, gets in the way. great for a p-dog shooter though, depending on the reticle.

Re: scope help.

Zeiss is excellent glass. If the price is "right" I'd buy it. You can always trade it for something that better suits your needs later on.

...Sort of like looking over the hood of a conventional Western Star with a big bug deflector.... You know that car in front of you thats stopped is close...... but you can't see it......
