Schmidt & Bender PMII or I.O.R Tactical Scope??

Which scope should I choose on top of a HS tactical 6.5 x .284
To be used in Ireland for targets out to 1000yrds and deer stalking?
Any other advice on this setup appreciated!

Kindest Regards

Dob

In my opinion you are comparing a Porsche to a Camaro....

the IOR doesn't compare to the S&B... if you have the $$$

But I have heard the S&B scopes reticle is not good for targets as it gets bigger as the magnification goes up blocking out the target and the crosshairs are not that fine anyway??? (is this true) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

That's due to the front focal plane reticle in the S&B. IOR's used to have a FFP reticle, but now have mostly rear focal plane reticle scopes now.

It's all about what you like. I'll take a FFP scope for most all shooting scenarios...sakofan...

Re: Schmidt & Bender PMII or I.O.R Tactical Scope??

Buy once buy right. we are all to poor to have to buy a second time. S&B's out class all others IMHO.
The misconception that the 1st focal plain scope reticles block out the target as you wind the x's up, and that the reticle gets bigger is just not true. The reticle stays exactly the same size in relation to the target, which is why you can range with a FFP scope on an x settting. Yes the S&B PMII reticles are slightly fatter than a target scope, but thats because they are a real world sniper scope, you need to be able to see the reticle in all weathers and light conditions.
