I am going to be purchasing a Sako Laminated Stainless (GreyWolf)in .338 federal.  I was looking at IOR 2.5-10X42 30mm with illuminated HR5 reticle.   I was also considering the VX3 Leupold in illuminated German #4.  Why are the adjustments in cm instead of inches on that scope?    I hunt mostly whitetails in PA, but would like to also try it out on elk and mule deer.  Any thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

The IOR is a good scope, and the new Leupolds are looking pretty good also. Either one would do well I think. The power range is a personal preference thing. I think that you could pick one or the other, and both make sense. The reticle in the IOR would be my first choice though.
