Anyone ever use the IOR Valdada 10x42mm side focus scope? At only $800, it seems like an affordable choice for a high quality fixed 10x scope....any opinions out there?

Here it is:

Good scope, good glass, good click adjustments. I'd buy one if you can get it with the MP8 reticle.

I had one of their 6x years ago. I thought I had a problem with it, turned out to be the mt. Before I figured out what the problem was I called the valdata company. Turns out the warranty was a "guy" at valdata saying his scopes never failed. I traded the scope off. After that I bought a kahles 10x that was first rate and had a "company" with a repair department. The next time I buy I'll get a leopold. Might as well put an american or two to work. :cool:

Yeah, it will be with the MP-8 reticle.

Anyone prefer this reticle over the standard mild-dot reticle? It seems like you could effectively use holdovers for long rage shooting with the 1/2 Mil stadia lines.

Not really on the holdovers, as the first line under the cross hairs is pretty far, IIRC, like 5 mils. So if you are changing distances that far, then I guess so.

huh?

Doesn't the reticle increase in 1/2 mil increments?

The first wide stadia line is 5 mils, and the last wide stadia line is 10 mils.

Take a look.
