I recently purchased a IOR Tactical 10X42 with MP-8 reticle.  The instructions give some information on the reticle.  Regarding the 1/2 and 1 mil lines: are they also 1/2 and 1.0 mils in length? 

 

Are there any any informational write ups on this reticle?

Yep, the hashmarks are indeed 0.5 and 1.0 mil long.  The long hashmarks at 5 and 10 mil spots are 5 mils long.  Thin lines are 0.1 mil thick and thick bars are 1.0mil thick.

 I recently purchased a 2.5-10x42 IOR tactical illuminated in FFP. It is an incredible scope in clarity and resolution and to my eyes the color rendition is impeccable as well. It also tracks perfectly, with 20 clicks giving me EXACTLY 20 centimeters @ 100 meters up,down,sideways and back again,all day long.

  It has a few "peculiarities" though.For instance, screwing the sunshade in leaves a gap of about.050" between the end of the bell and the shoulder of the shade. I think my lathe will cure that easily, though.(The sunshade,not the scope!) Also,setting the magnification below around 5-6x shrinks the image (of course),but it leaves a large black outer ring, giving one the appearance of looking through a tunnel.It only does this at lower magnifications.My Leupolds don't do this but they are Second Focal Plane systems in 1" tubes, the IOR is 30mm. so this phenomenon may be nothing more than a necessary side effect of  other design parameters.

  The last thing I need to mention is that the MP8 reticle is NOT as shown on SWFA's store webpage.Check out the reticle image superimposed on the zebras.

Mine has no thick section on the outside ends of the top and side crosshairs.The center dot is where it should be and so are all the ranging hash marks, but no Duplex-style heavy crosshairs. I actually like it better this way though so it isn't a complaint, but maybe somebody ought to mention it to Chris?
