I also have one. I don't think there is any additional light gathering in a 50 vs 44. I think I read where the 42-44mm objective is about the maximum diameter objective for light effectiveness. I think that was based on a 30mm tube. I'm sure going to a bigger tube, that objective would also change. My 3-15x44 is as bright as any of my 50/60mm obj on 30mm tubes.anyone use this scope. I have several vx3 x 50MM and like them. not sure how I would like it going from 50MM to 44MM ?
A local LR gunsmith uses this scope on most of his rifles. Pricey but using the CDS cap that's free for one load is best scope out there. He's used about all brands and says the glass and accuracy of the CDS system is second to none. You won't be sorry if you're wanting a good accurate LR scope. The VX3i CDS version is a good scope also and almost half the price. Glass is main difference.anyone use this scope. I have several vx3 x 50MM and like them. not sure how I would like it going from 50MM to 44MM ?
