    I like the scope. I am getting used to the reticle on the FFP but other than that it works great. Clicks have been repeatable and glass is very clear. I will be another.

    I thought that IOR went away from First Focal Plane and were now second focal plane? Am I getting senile, did I imagine it?

    Thanks,
    Don

    The IOR scopes I looked thru at 2006 Shot Show were 2nd focal plane.

    I posted earlier on under the wrong post. Mine is on the FFP, mine is a tactical scope maybe their hunting scopes have 2nd FP. I love mine I have a target that measures 60" overall from ground to top with a 36" X 36" square I put my targets on. With these dimensions it is easy to teach myself a little about the mil-dot system. I think I will by a higher power target scope with a fine crosshair just for load development and then install one of these or one similar to it.

    The 2.5-10 comes both ways...FFP or SFP.
    It is a fine scope in either configuration for a 10x.
    My FFP sits on a HBV 308 and works well for my applications.
