I would like to get an IOR scope that would allow me to use the mi-dots to range on all magnifacations.  (I believe this is FFP)

 

What scopes does IOR make that are set up to do this?

Welcome to The OT!!

 

Luckily, we have several shooter on this forum that are fond of IOR's.

 

IOR makes a few FFP reticle scopes, especially in their "Tactical" line.

What type of shooting are you planning on doing? 

Specifically, what ranges?

Rifle type?

 

One of the things that IOR offers is their MP-8 reticle, which is kind of an enhanced version of the older Mil Dot reticle you mentioned above. Very user friendly.

 

For LR shooting with a bolt action rifle, this scope would be nice. It's FFP too.

This scope has received rave reviews both here and on several other forums.

Just to be sure, it is the FFP scopes that allow you to mil at all magnifacations?

 

Bolt gun, .308 out to 1K. 

 

6.5 grendal in an AR out to 800

 

.223 in an AR out to 400

 

I would like to get a scope for each gun and I really want to me able to use the Mil-dots at all magnifacations.
