I like a big uncluttered picture myself for hunting. Now for target punching, I like Mil-dots. The tube/objective lens size doesn't matter so much.

BDC for hunting, Mill or I prefer MOA target scope for target shooting. Between 40 to 50 mill objective.

I personally don't need the adjustment of a 30mm tube nor do I need the burden of a 50mm plus bell housing with todays coated lens.

1" tub and 40-42mm here, to each there own

I like 50mm and high mag. Don't care for mil. Don't have BDC but wouldn't mind it

I have a 34 mm with a 46mm obj on my uso and I also like it. Built like a brick and weighs as much as one.

Have no scopes with objective > 44mm and do not see the need for them since I can and have shot coyotes and hogs on full moon or near it at night with some of these.

4 most often used rifles wear

2.5X15-44 Swaro Z6
3X9-40 Kahles
2X7-32 Kahles
2X7-32 Nikon Monarch

Those Elite scopes are a really good bargain and just now seem to be getting more popular.

True on the Bushy ELITE scopes have a few, the 3200 and 4200 are very nice but the 6500s are in another class up in glass quality IMO.

I think the 4200 tactical have a in between quality. Well at least it seems to me they are better than plain 4200 but not sure if they are up to 6500 series glass.
