Re: Help with Scope

I've used IORs for a few years now with no major problems.Just about all of my shooting is @ prairie dogs in full light.The fixed 16x is good enough to se in the moonlight for coyotes but 16x is too much power if its closer than 100 yards and the MP-8 reticle demands snow to see it clearly.Never realy had the 6-24s out in low light so I cant say but a 2.5-10x aught to be a great night scope though I have not tryed one nor do I have any info on the illuminated models?
Got a pair of 3-18s on order but again these will be non illuminated but aught to gather light very well....Timel tell?

Re: Help with Scope

Mach V,

Thanks for the feedback and for the pic's. How do the scope's compare with others? What is it about them that made you decide? I like the data/spec's that I have found so far. The scope's seem to have all the right components. Scope's going on top of a 7mm Sako...

Re: Help with Scope

Was looking for was a scope with good glass,a reticle I could work with and that would be affordable to put on every long range gun I owned.....IOR at the time met my criteria the best.
These scopes predate most of the new reticles that are available today.At the time of purchase only NF offered a reticle that I liked to work with(R-2)
Baught these IORs because they where the cost of a NF at the time.In fact I traded 2 NF for three IORs and feel I got the better end of the deal by a large margin!!The IORs all track well,have some great glass in them and with the exeption of a couple of minor mounting problems have ben trouble free.
The 2 I have on order are gona cost me again as much as I have in the original IORs but have a couple of added fetures(cleaner center aiming point and better ellivation turrants) that will help justify some of the cost.The rest of the added cost I can write off to keeping the same reticle that I am used too

Re: Help with Scope

Thanks for the good feedback. What do you think of the 4A DOT retical? I'm thinking about the 4-14x56 30mm Illum. I want a scope that I can hunt with in the most minimum of light & looks good. I like the 30mm & 56mm option. I will be hunting from a deer blind with this gun.. With these scopes do you see any difference in low light due to the objective sizes?

Mach V I really appreciate your feedback. Thanks for helping me out here. We don't have a local store that stocks them. So I'm not able to go and inspect them over the counter.

Re: Help with Scope

I have an 3X18 illuminated (35mm tube) with the MP8 reticle. I haven't tried it at night yet but am going on a varmint hunt in TX next week that will change that. I have the scope mounted on my 300RUM and have shot it as far away as 600y. I am very pleased with the scope.
