I woudl pick the SS.  The IOR has 1/4 moa adjustments and a mil based reticle.  I love the MP8 reticle, probably my favorite I have used, but the mil quad is very good.  But back to the adjustments.  The SS has 1/10 mil and a mil based reticle, so they match.  Which is huge in my book.  Glass wise they will both be excellent, so no issues there.  Mechanically all the IORs I have ever owned, (probably 8 or 10 of them) they have all tracked great (until they broke).  I have owned probably a similar number of SS scopes included the 10x HD and they have all tracked excellent as well. 


I had 4 or 5 different 3-18x model and had lots of issues with them.  Customer service was good, but after a time I got sick of sending them back.  Sold all my IORs except 1. 

Overall I think the SS scopes are a better bargain for what you get.  IOR makes nice scopes, but they cost more money and you don't get any more scope.

I bought the SS10HD.  Originally IOR was not big on customer service but has improved over the years.  I liked the SS10HD a lot but upgraded to the 5 to 20.  SS HD

SWFA SS. Just due to the fact I have a few of them and they hold up over time returning to Zero.

I have the regular 10XM vs the 10X. I ahve the 10x and it is fine but like the location of the 10XM.

Also the MIL-Quad reticle makes more sense and has more capability.

I have them from 22lr. to .338LM and they do the job well.
