What is the max range, generally speaking, for using the IOR 6 power tactical scope?  I know that a 10 power scope has been known to be good for 1000 meters.

That probably depends on the size of the target.  I recall that a Soviet sniper/designated marksman said that the issued 4x scope on his Dragunov was sufficient for center of mass hits on a human size target out to 800 yards or so.  IOR 6x has glass a fair bit better than the old soviet scopes and a little more magnification.  The furthest I shot it was 700 yards (that is the longest I can shoot at our range).  I was able to resolve aim for 18" wide targets reasonably comfortably.  On a human size target, a good shot should be able to make 1000 yard shots. 

Personally, I do not think I can hit anything other than the ground that far out with any consistency though that would be with pretty much any scope.

A 10x scope at 1000 yards is like no scope at 100 yards and a 6x scope at 600 yds is like no scope at 100 yards. So a 6x scope at 1200 yards would be like open sights at 200 yds a little tough but possible. The truth is that anytime you get past 200 yards the wind and the trajectory change things considerably. You are usually limited more by the quality of the rifle and the cartridge selected than by the scope. If you can see it you can shoot at it - may not hit it but you'll get an A for effort.   Lots of fun to shoot at leaves floating down the river at distance or at a pond  - instant feedback.  Add a laser range finder and some trajectory charts and wind info + a tactical scope and you dramatically improve your odds.

How you like the rifle?  I've really been thinking of getting one in 300WSM.

 

How is compared to 700?  Or compared to something along those lines, Military M40, H&S stuff, etc?

I love the rifle.  I do own a 700.  The trigger on the 700 is better.  But this isn't any problem.  I had it adjusted down to about 4 lbs.  I will probably put a Jewell trigger in it.  I did replace the 700 trigger with a Rifle Basix trigger.

 

Picky I am.  But it shoots great as is.  I used Prvi 168 gr match rounds and in the first 20 rounds out of the rifle got sub moa at 100 yds.  That's good for me.

How are the clicks on the IOR's?  I got my eye on one for my incoming Rem 700 in .223.  I think this scope would be the cats pajama's for it.

It's really a nice scope the only down side is that since it it blue steel you must wipe it down. Clicks are good you will like it and the glass is very nice I did a side by side comparison to my Leupold fixed 10x M3 Mk4 and I was amazed at the IOR glass in the  6x.  I should have kept the scoe at the time I didnt need it now I do need one.  If you are going to have a fixed power 6x42 is the way to go as far as I am concerned.
