I'm looking at getting an I.O.R 4-14x50 illuminated reticle scope, But there is a bit of info i need that is different depending on where the scope is listed for sale. I've seen it listed as 82MOA total adjustment and 88MOA total adjustment which is it? Also i've seen it listed as 1/4MOA turrets adjustments and 1/2MOA turret adjustments, again which is it. And last but not least, this ain't as important but im curious about it. What focal plane is the reticle on the first or second? I've read in two or three places that their illuminated variable power scopes are 1st focal. If anyone knows the answers to any of this please let me know I got to order the scope within the next week cuz the gun it's going on is getting built right now.

See it used to be listed differently on the valdada site as well. I'm thinking when i order the scope from cactus I'll just get them to verify everything right off the box. i want the 1/2moa turrets, and i'm not real worried about the total adjustment range as its getting mounted on a 20moa base. unless 41MOA of adjustment( assuming the mechanical zero matches up with the 100yd zero doubt it will) is enough to get a .308 out to 1000+yards? if in fact the scope is 82 instead of 88MOA total adjustment. I do however like the idea of the 1st focal plane for the retical since the relation between the mil marks in the retical will stay the same at all power settings, but thats only on the illuminated retical scopes(so ive heard) but if the Illuminated is a 1/4moa adjustment I don't want it.....hmmmmmmmmmm

Looks like the tapered base was a good call so far. Thanks

No problem. I'm always trying to help out.

Well I just got an answer from cactus tactical. The scope has been refined a bit. It has 98MOA total adjustment and 1/2MOA clicks yup time to order me a new scope i think. And best of all I get to save a few bucks cuz a tappered base won't be needed and it's a few more than the regular base i was goin to use. this week is getting better to bad it's over, damn with a couple more days maybe i would have gotten lucky enough to win the lottery or something.
