First let me tell you of a test I did so you know what info I am interested. My question is at the bottom.
Last March 15, 2010
This evening I compared the 13X56 Minox, Bushnell 6500 4 ½-30X50, and the 12-42X56 NightForce. I tried to get the magnification the same on the rifle scopes to match the binoculars. I picked the words “THIS SIDE DOWN” on the pump house 127 yards away for the test. The following gives the times when I could no longer read the words without resorting to trying to make out individual letters.
Bushnell 6500 4 ½-30X50
After the Bushnell could no longer read the words I turned it up so I could read the words again. This required 18X. Each time I turned the power ring up to what was required to read the words again. The following are the minutes I could no longer read the words with the Bushnell 6500.
18X – 7:03
20X – 7:10
26X – 7:16
30X – 7:24
While I was turning up the Bushnell, I did not have to turn the NightForce up until 7:00 PM. I then turned it up till I could read the words again. This required 16X. The following are the minutes when I could no longer read the words with the NightForce.
16X – 7:11PM
20X – 7:16 PM
22X – 7:25 PM
24X – 7:27 PM
26X – 7:28 PM
At this point it was too dark to even see the letters.
Has anyone compared the Swaro Z5 5-25X52 with the Bushnell 6500 4 1/2-30X50 in a comparable test? What were the results?
