Can someone please explain to me a simple question about the following scope:

 

Leupold 1.5-5x20 VX-III 30mm Riflescope

 

Obviously, this scope has a 30mm Tube with a 20mm Bell. How does this happen? Please explain to me how this measurement is taken. I have never heard this discussed.

The outside of the tube is 30mm.   INSIDE the tube is the glass and a MOUNTING ring and SEAL . Tube plus(minus) ring and seal = glass.
