My "cousin" in New York sent me a 2x10x50 on a 30mm tube yesterday and after looking across the Little Mineral Arm's close to a mile across distances in front of the house at Texoma yesterday and clearly seeing stuff I'd never seen before ... I'm looking at some of his other MOVING SALE goodies in the next power range larger, that offer a choice of x50 or x56 Objectives at close enough to the same dime that it is not an issue. Can only afford 1 at a time these days, so I can't buy both to run side by side comparisons on stuff anymore. T3's or M70 Fwt's will be the operating platforms for under 500 yard usage.
So, what say the better informed among us about the pro's & con's of each in a 30mm tube and a 3x15 power range 2nd Focal Plane scope?
