My elevation turret is tighter than the windage, but not to the point that it is a bother. I figured it was tighter as the knob was bigger and could apply more leverage.

Re: IOR 3-18x with mp8 reticle

ah ok cool. that's all I wanted to know. this scope isnt set up properly but it's still the best scope I've never used in regards to clarity, magification and reticle setup. the reticle's little dot is something I immensely enjoyed shooting it yesterday.


I traded my nightforce for it and definitely do not regret it.

My IOR has a "stiff"spot just about midway on the elevation. It does seem to be loosening up with use though.

Re: IOR 3-18x with mp8 reticle

I have a IOR, 9-36x56, with a MP 8 reticle. My elevation knob (turret) is loose at the upper limit ( top 25 MOA) of travel. It too tigthens up about half way down in travel. At that point the dial is tighter turning CC than CCW. The windage knob feel is consistent in both directions, but hash marks (lines) do not line up.

Also,as a side note, there is a slight yellowish tint in viewing. In fairness I have not mounted it yet and have no idea of it's performance in the real world.

Glass does seem to be very good to this untrained eye.

Re: IOR 3-18x with mp8 reticle

what type of base do you all use? 25 moa? I tested mine out and figure, with my current very tall rings(which need to be replaced) that I have about 30 moa total of adjustment. at 10 moa that takes me out to 500 yards.was shooting 170gr scenar rounds from lapua the other day. plan later on driving 168s to 800 yards.

Re: IOR 3-18x with mp8 reticle

I love the reticle so much I have two IOR's. The more I use it the more I love it. As I am getting better with ranging and hold overs, the reticle is really showing its value.
