I am looking at IOR valdada for 308. Does anyone own one of there tactical models? Do they rate with the other high end optics?

I can certainly testify that the IOR 2.5-10 DOES NOT hold up well to a 20mm sniper rifle.  However, it did not have any problems with 50BMG.  The glass is better than average, "clicks" are repeatable and consistent.  Not a bad scope, compares well with others that cost a lot more.

Kickboxer is correct.
Glass quality is better than average, and they have certain reticles that are calibrated for .308.
The elvation turret does the math for you.
Once you have found your zero at 100 yards you can dial the turret to 3 and shoot at 300 yards and ect...
The adjustments are very audible and definitive.
But the weight for me is a concern.
If you plan to use this a bench gun it might not be as bad. I know with some shooters it can be combersome.

currently on my fourth ior tactical and would gladly trade it for one of the new ss 5.x20 which is in the same price class. everything from tracking to ao problems. If your talking about higher end tactical - the ones i've had don't come close to the Razor which is just a few dollars more, let alone a uso, premier or sandb. Even the sfp nfs are made better.
 any ballistic knob will require you use or handload to the drops on the knob. this may or may not be a problem for some.
