Being new to rifle scopes, I thought I would start out with a SS10x42, well they won't be in for 30 days.  Snce this will go on top of either an AR10T or AR10A4C or my Stag 4L, it will be for some hunting but mostly targets/varmits out to 300~400 yds. My question is what are the Optical differences between the IOR 2.5-10x42 Tactical Rifle Scope and the equivalent hunting model? It comes down to the IOR Hunter, Zeiss Conquest or maybe the Bushnell 4200.  I have only seen one person over on the Tatical side say that he doesn't like the hunter models.
Thanks,
Chris

If you are hunting or engaging enemy targets at varied distances you need some system of accurately estimating where the trajectory of your bullet will be at known distances or you miss your target. Tactical knobs are one solution and if you take a set of kenton knobs or have Lepold make marked balistic compensating knobs you have a very good solution. similar to this is the Multizero feature found on some Kahles scopes and for hunting this is an excellent pick.  Balistic reticles are one solution however we find them only offered on higher power scopes and in second focal plane so they are only useful at the highest power which is a problem.  The other option is a FFP first focal plane scope with marks on the reticle like mil dots or Leupolds TMR where the marks are known hold over points but remain the same hold over at any power setting.

6846 Kahles 3-10x50 Helia CL Multizero 51723, Matte finish, 1" tube, plex reticle, side focus, fast focus eye piece, allows you to zero your scope at five different ranges, close to new condition. $1,315.00 $749.95

What is wrong with IOR HUnting models?  same scopes as the tacticals, but with different knobs.  The glass is the same.
