The 30mm tube diameter is for more MOA mainly in elevation.  

You reasoning is perfectly correct in theory.  However, in practice, there is so little demand for high magnification fixed power scopes that you often pay premium for them.  Besides, variable scopes from quality makers got so good that in most cases there is no downside to going with one of them.

Well I just got off of the phone (3/25/11, 3:55 PM EST) with Steven (tech support with Sightron) and he told me, that the 70 MOA for windage/elevation is total for both. I said, " you mean 70 MOA TOTAL for windage, and 70 MOA TOTAL for elevation ? " He said "NO, absolutely not, the 70 MOA is 35 MOA for windage, and 35 MOA for elevation." I said " are you sure about this ?". He said "I am 100% positive."
 
Someone better get their facts straight. I don't know who, but I am holding off buying a Sightron SIII SS 8-32x 56mm until this is positively clarified. 

If that recollection of the conversation is accurate, Steven should be fired on grounds of incompetence.

It is 70MOA of total elevation adjustment and 70MOA of total windage adjustment.

That statement  made by Koshkin is correct and just so there is no confusion I grabbed one off the shelf and confirmed it.

Thank You very much for the clarification !
 
 I am now contemplating between the SIII 8-32x 56, and the Minox ZA%/30 6-30x 56mm. Decisions decisions.
