Ive been researching scopes a lot lately. I need a new scope for a 338LM that is on its way. It will have to be moa/moa. FFP doesnt really matter to me so long that the FFP reticle is fine enough at max magnification to see the target at 1k+ (think pie plate size) I was working my way to settling on a 5.5-22x50 NXS w/ zero stops, fast turn turrets. I saw the new IOR: 6-24x56 35mm SF MOA/MOA ILLUMINATED FFP MP8-X1 (MOA-X) RETICULE Either scope will do what I would need it to. The IOR is FFP and I can't find subtension listed anywhere for it. I want to know the size of the dot. It does help being a dot in a FFP so I can see my small target way off. The IOR has less internal adjustment; 70MOA. With a 20 MOA, that could get me to 1700yds at 5k' elevation, If the scope zereos dead center. I'm really interested in comparison of optical quality. Ive never handled a IOR and it will be difficult for me to drop $2k on a scope I haven't handled or looked through. I know the IOR is new, anybody used both or intrigued by the IOR? It is heavier by 5oz or so, and it is also a 35 mm tube. The rifle is a savage (110 fcp hs), a little over 10lbs bare. It is not a lightweight rig, but it is not a truck gun. I will be lugging it around. I'm sure I would be happy with either scope I just don't want to give up any optical clarity.
