I'm looking at an IOR 6-24x50 scope.  The illuminated reticle is standard on this model.  Now, do I understand it correctly that the IOR reticle illumination lights up the thick posts as well as the thin posts?  If so, has anyone found this a distraction, especially compared to the Leupold illuminated models, which only illuminate the thin posts?  Thanks.

if what you are looking at is an mp-8 recticle then yes it lights up all the lines and no it is not a distraction. I just sighted it in on numerous deer out to 350 yards in a cornfield in south dakota after sunset when all you could see is the outline of the deer against the yellow cut off cornstalks and I could see the  cross hair dot just fine against the body of the deer.

     have never looked through a illum leupold but the illum mp-8 has lit lines that are very sharp and crisp in contrast.

I owned an IOR lit reticle. Not the model in question.

Mine was a FFP, lit MP-8.

 

Yes, the whole reticle lit up.

Not a big IOR guy anymore, but they do make a decent illuminated reticle.

 

Welcome to the forum.......
