What scope IOR or Night Force for hunting rig

I currently have a 8-32 night force and it the best scope I have ever used. But I have a walk around hunting rifle that needs a bigger scope. The 4-16 just isn't cutting it. i love the night forces but they weigh too much. the Ior 6-24-50 seems like the perfect sized scope for my rifle. The leupold long range scopes also give you a lot of bang for your buck. The most important things I am worried about is clarity and tracking. i have had tracking problems with the older leupolds. are the new leupolds more dependable. As far as the IOR's they look like a good scope but I have never used them. Any info would be appreciated. Reed

    The IOR will give you a better image and color retention than the Luepold will. The color retention is fairly important in a hunting scope. It will make it a lot easier to pick game out of the brush. Tracking is normally very good with the IOR's, but a lot of track issues stem from mounts and how well the erector tube is centered in relationship to the bore axis.

    the IOR seems like the right scope for me. I need this scope for 1300 yard deer and ground hog scope. I was thinking about the 6-24 with a 35mm tube. The 35mm tube should allow more light in and give it much more adjustiment right? Thanks Reed

    Reed the 35mm tube will not have any advantage in light gathering only adjustments

    Thats right the only advantage would be in the total MOA. I'm going to be calling IOR tomorrow, I'll see if they have came in yet.

    Val at IOR is hoping to have the new 6-24x50 Illuminated 35mm scopes in within the next two weeks.
