Got one on order from Radical, should be here in a month. Love to hear what optics others have on theirs. Will definitely be used for hunting, but also want to be able to reach out there with her.

I bet a Burris XTR II 2-10X would pair nicely with that rifle.

I would probably use a compact 2-7 variable, mounted low.

I agree with FiremanJG. The Burris XTR would be a nice choice.

I went the cheap route. My Radical Grendel has a Primary Arms Orion 4-14X mil/mil FPP and a Nikon M223 mount with built in 20moa base. I plan on upgrading when I get more funds.

I have a Zeiss Conquest 3-12x50 with red illumination on one and an ATN X-Sight 3-12 on another.

I don't know what your budget is, but the Bushnell Elite 3-12 is an awesome scope that would go great on your Grendel.

Thanks guys, looking at Burris and Vortex pretty hard, to keep under $1k.

The Bushnell Elite Tactical 3-12 is $700ish.
