New IOR 9-36x 56mm on the way for the 338 AM....

Been looking around for a scope to mount up on my 60 lb 338 AM for shooting out to +2000 yards and possibly out to the 2 mile marker for testing bullet stability.

I was going to get a NF 8-32 NXS but came across an IOR 9-36. I have shot alot of IOR scopes but never owned one so I figured what the heck. From everything I read this is a great scope so we will see soon.

Will post a review here soon when it gets here and mounted up. Stay tuned if interested.

Do you have an 8-32 NXS to compair it to?
When I compaired my 6-24x35 to my 8-32x30br(set @ 24x)the NF hit the road and a couple more IORs took up residence.
To me the glass was noticeably better in the IOR,it had a little more MOA adjustment and I like the side adjusters.
Seams to me though that a test between the 8-32NXS and the new 9-36IOR would be a tuff one(if your not already used to the MP-8 reticle)They both have 65MOA of adjustment,are about the same length,weight and have about the same field of view.The biggest differences would be the 4x in power,the 5mm in diamiter and the $$$ difference.
Looking forward to your review!

I had one in my hand today at a gun show. I can tell you this I will have one in the near future. The glass looked excelent compared to the nxs next to it. The price was about the same for the IOR or a NXS.

D-A,

Ordered my from Don at Long Range supply. He charged $1349 and covered the shipping. A new 8-32 NXS will run atr least $1450 the cheapest place I have seen them, then you have to pay for a set of rings as well and shipping.

The rings are included with the price of the IOR scope.

If they are as good a quality as the NF this is a GREAT deal. I am not saying the NF is not an amazing scope. It is and was the one I was going to use. Still, if you can save a couple hundred $$ on a top quality scope, why not try it.

We will see soon.

Thast a helluva deal. I havent seen them for less than 1500 other than the one today. I knew thew came with you choice of rings, just didn't know if they would be worth a darn. I figure i will get heat seakins to make me some rings to clear the barrel block any way.

Let me know what you think about them. I could only compare them indoors looking at the darkest corner of the building.
