I have had several different IOR 3-18xs.  Had the original and the 2nd and 3rd gen Snipers Hide FFP edition. 

I now have the SS 5-20x and think overall it is a better scope than the ones I had.  I had a lot of problems with the IORs had to send 4 3-18xs back for replacement.  The IORs tunnel at the low mags so you really gain nothing in FOV at those lower powers vs the 5-20x. 

I like the 50mm objective on the SS better as well.  Makes using 14x and 15x a bit brighter.  Optically I don't think there is going to be much of a difference.

Having owned both, I'd give the edge to SS on several points.

I do really like the MP-8 reticle though.

Jeff-
 
Only thing I didn't like about the MP8 is the fine dot in the center.
 
I was stuck on Vortex's EBR 2B for a while, But my favorite it the SS. 
Quads make subtending, something you don't have to think about.
