    I just bought this scope from a friend.

    IOR Valdada 3.5-18X50

    At First sight it seems like a really nice scope. The only thing I don´t really like is the magnification ring. It´s too stiff. That was the main reason I threw out My SIII. This one has a little lever that help you make the adjustments, but still really stiff.
    Love the Zero Stop and the FFP reticle. I still like my PST reticle better, but this glass quality makes me over look that.
    Adjustment knobs feel really nice, specially the elevation turret.

    I mounted it on my .338 EDGE, hope it can get me out to 1000+. I´m a little concerned about the 18x max magnification, hopefully it´s not a big issue. If I feel I need more magnification maybe I´ll put it on my 7mm Rem Mag Sendero.
