 I'd like some input from IOR 10 x 42 mp8 reticle users regarding comparison of the mp8 and mil dot forms.I'm about to scope a Rem LTR 300 SAUM and I've pretty much settled on 3 scope options 1) Leupold 3.5 x 10 x 40 LR/T m1, 2) IOR 2.5 x 10 x 42 mp8 3) 4.5 x 14 x 40 PR -- that mp8 reticle is interesting-- in a previous post I called it complicated which would be interpreted as cluttered but now I'd be interested to know more from users of the system.

I found the MP8 to be a very nice ranging reticle. Not busy.

I had a standard reticle in one scope and an illuminated reticle in another.


I didn't get a chance to use it for ranging very much, I'm sorry to say, but I'm sure it would be more than adequate in that role.

The perfect reticle doesn't exist yet it is a cross between Leupold's new TMR  Tactical Milling Reticle  less the heavy portion of the top post above the 5th mil  and their VXIII   Varmit reticle with wind driift marks for 10 mph and 20mph wind  and using the thin lower post like the MP8.     


I suggested it to Leupold last week, keep your fingers crossed.


How rough are you on the scope? What distance do you expect to engage targets at. If you engage targets at various distances over 200 yds I would go with M3 dials which have 1moa per click and 1/2 moa per windage click because the cam system is idiot proof under stress. Als the lower profile of the knobs means they don't snag on things as badly. M3 would drive a target shooter nuts but for a combat gun it is a sweet thing - no getting lost in that dial.  The best choice for Police tactical is 4.5-14 LRT M1 you get service after the sale and you can get illuminated TMR reticle yes it's costly, but once you are in for seven or eight hundred you might as well jump in all the way. The IOR scopes are interesting especially the very reasonably priced 6x42.   Also worth considering is Nikon 4-16x50 at $999.

Check samplelist too.

4512 Leupold 8.5-25x50 Mark 4 M1 LR/T Iluminated Click for Picture Matte finish, 30mm tube, side focus parallax, illuminated mil dot reticle, M1 style 1/4 moa windage and elevation, fast focus eye piece, very close to new display model, minor handling wear, missing original box $1,564.00 $1,149.95

The more I shoot my Mark 4  fixed 10x40 M3 the more I like it.
