Re: Leupold or IOR best value for money?
I have a new IOR fixed 10X tactical on my new left-handed DPMS AR-15. I'm going the opposite direction of most shooters and going back to the lower power scopes.
Consider this, the USMC scout snipers use a fixed Unertl 10X on both their .308 M40A1 rifles as well as well as their 50 cals. They don't rely on a lot of magification to shoot extremly long ranges.
The turrets on the IOR have positive clicks like most scopes, they don't turn freely. Eye relief has been very good and I have not experienced any issues with it.
As for the two screws on the turret, you are incorrect. The turret moves just like any other scopes turrets. Turn in the direction you want and the cross hairs move and they move. The two screw are for when you have your zero and you want to put the turret back to the zero mark without moving the cross hairs. Yes, it's a bit different than the US scopes, but it is very common on Euro scopes. Takes all of 10 seconds to learn.
Just my $0.02 worth
Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
