Kahles 3-9x42TDS vs. IOR 2.5-10x42MP-8

I am looking for a new scope to put on my .270. I want to use this for mainly deer hunting and want to work up to being able to shoot up to 500-600 yards with a clean kill. I know this will take practice. I am leaning toward the kahles, but want some more opinions. I have looked through the kahles and thought the quality was excellent. I don't know of anyone or anyplace close to look through an IOR. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I went with the IOR 2.5-10x42 tacticle scope, with the MP 8 reticle.

I also thought the Kahles had very nice optics. But, overall the IOR is really the cats ass, with better, (for ranging), game and varmints out past 500 yds or so..sakofan..The Kahles is a nice piece as well..

Agree on the IOR with the NP-8 reticle.

also Chris Gilchrest of Red Mountain Optics in NC (distributor for IOR) is offering discounts on IOR to Int. Benchrest Shooters (IBS) members. Contact him at redmtnjoe@aol.com or (919) 477-0550 for details. I do not remember what the discount was for each scope.

Thanks for the replys! BH, i am not a IBS member but i appreciated the info. I have been hunting awhile, but just getting into a little longer range hunting and target shooting. I'm still debating on the scopes, i know the IOR is probably more presice with mills, but it is tough desiding when i haven't ever seen one, just what i have seen on their sight. I wish i had the money to buy both!
Thanks again!

Well if you decide and the discout is good enough, you can join IBS for $40 a year and $36 of that 40 goes to the Precision Shooting magazine subscription. Might save you some $ and give you subscription to Precision Shooting mag.

beleive me when I say that the discount Chris offers is well more than enough to offset the IBS membership. His prices he quoted me were GREAT. Call him if you are thinking of buying one,..he's a straight shooter.

If I decide on the IOR I will give him a call. I have looked a a bunch of different websites and impact guns had the lowest price of $569.99 shipped. I still am not set on which one yet, though.
Thanks for the reply and info!!!!
