Could you tell me the differnce between a 30mm tube and a normal tube on a Leupold and the advantages.

MSPHunter, 30mm equals 1.181". The slightly larger tube usually makes for brighter optics even with a smaller objective. I don't own a 30mm scope but I have customers who won't use anything else. George

You also usually get more clicks with a 30mm tube.
