If the Vortex XBR doesn't work your poaching hunting after hours.
Hmm . . . Swarovski optics or some guy on a crossbow forum. See post #2.Knock yourself out. This is still America, and you're free to disagree if you want......and free to be wrong too.
And right in his article title it says that it matters.Hmm . . . Swarovski optics or some guy on a crossbow forum. See post #2.
Nope. The only advantage of a 30mm tube versus 1” is additional strength and more adjustability for the turrets. Some people think a 30mm tube increases the FOV and that’s not always true either.but when you boil it down to "all else being equal" tube size DOES matter.
Found it.For additional info, I would direct you folks to a site by Ilya Koshkin called Optics Thoughts.
I read his stuff too. And I'll concede the difference between 1" & 30mm, but not the larger tubes (1" vs 34-35mm).I’ll go with the Optics Master . . .
An over simplified answer is;For what reason?
I am enlightened. ThankyouAn over simplified answer is;
That it's typically an issue that is a combination of eye relief (focal length)and magnification. The closer to max magnification you get, the more critical proper eye relief becomes. Improper eye relief tends to cause "tunneling"....a type of vignetting. A high magnification scope that is also shorter OAL will often tend to be more susceptible to this problem, which is part of the reason why there are so few high power short length scopes that are acceptable w/o spending a small fortune.
