Default Finished up Grendel Build

Picked up a Black Friday Special Upper. CMC trigger. Anderson lower. Havenít shot it yet, but it feels great. Trying to decide if I should do a low power 1-6 or a red dot until I save up for a thermal.

Iíve converted all of my ARs except my 10mm to 1-6 or 1-8 scopes. Much more versatile.

I’m not a red dot fan... but I wouldn’t want to restrict that gun/caliber combo to a red dot. Put something with a little zoom on that bad boy

I’ve got a fixed 10x on mine. Works great for most everything. Night vision on the 300blk. I enjoy stretching its legs out a bit further then a 6x would do. Love the Grendel. Got some 90gr tnts loaded for mine running ~2750

I put a 5x prism from Primary Arms with a illuminated reticle and love it and the smaller size than a full size scope

I have a 1-6 Vortex Strike Eagle, I like it. They make also a 1-8 for a bit more.

I would do a 1-6 or a 1-8. Several out there make some decent ones for not too much money. Primary Arms has some that aren't too terrible. Vortex is good too.

I think 1-6 would be ideal. A little magnification will be appreciated as you get further out.

Vortex Strike Eagle. Palmetto has one of the strike eagles on sale with a mount right now.
