I am planning on purchasing a 6.5 Grendel SR with a 28" barrel. And the question is what optics and power. This will be my first so called tactical rifle since its an AR bassed weapon. Any suggestions?

What will be the primary use for the gun?

How much money are you willing to spend?

There are quite a few 28" Grendels out there in fact mine is a 24". Since many of us reload the longer barrels allow slower powders to be used.

just curious, makes a lot of diff on which scope the guy might be interested. if you can use enough of a slow burning powder to show serious increases in fps in a 28" barrel i'm all ears.

LOL makes no difference in concerns of the scope he would choose. Was just commenting that when he said he was getting a 28" Grendel, it was probably not a misprint.

it is a 28" barrrel and the rifle will be used for varmints, paper punching, tactical and anything else i can think of. I am leaning towards an IOR 3x18x42SH or a leupold mark 4.
