I'd appreciate it if somebody who owns a 4.5-30X  Elite 6500 would put a caliper or ruler accross the front objective bell of the scope and let me know what it measures in width. 
 
I know my 1" tubed Bushnell Elite 4200 measures 1 15/16" accross and comes accross as fairly compact for a 6x24X scope. I'm thinking of buying the 4.5x-30x and want to know how much wider the front bell is VS my 4200. I can tell you that the Sightron 8-32x SIII that I had returned was huge and looked almost like a small spotting scope! If anybody has that Sightron scope, I wouldn't mind knowing what it measures too.....just so I can tell how the Bushnell 6500 will compare to the Sightron.

Sightron 8-32x56 SIII 65mm

4.5-30X50  Elite 6500 58mm

Bushnell Elite 4200 6x24X40 AO 53MM and SF is 50mm

These are the values in their literature.

FYI 25.4mm = 1 inch.

Thank you, but I would still prefer if somebody who has the scope would put a ruler accross the front of it it real fast. I simply don't trust metric postings from brochures.
Yes, I too have seen these stats posted in the literature of just about all scopes being sold, but 50mm is a very generic number being used by many manufacturesrs as in "8x-32 x 50mm" for example.
While 53mm is more specific, I still trust and comprehend a good ole American number like 1 7/8" or 2 1/16"  much better.

FYI The 50mm in your example 8x-32 x 50mm refers to the objective lens diameter and not the overall objective bell diameter. And is not a generic number.
