    Primary Arms 3-18x50mm FFP Rifle Scope

    Anyone tried a Primary Arms 3-18x50mm FFP Rifle Scope - Illuminated ACSS HUD DMR ?

    Asked Primary Arms direct if the 308 reticle lines up with the 6.5 grendel balistics, and they replied it does with the Grendel 123 gr SMK with a BC of .510 and a muzzle velocity of 2650 right out to 1000 yrds .

    Not too worried about this as I plan to use the turrets mostly. Seen lots of great reviews on these scopes. Must admit I prefer SFP, but at this price thought it may be worth buying.

    Haven't looked through a 3x18 but I have a 4x14 and really rate it. Much better glass than my old PST Gen1. Biggest problem is no real local importer
    . I brought mine in from Optics trade. Cost me a bomb to get it through customs though.

    I've discovered that the grendel is a unique low velocity , medium BC round (very similar to the .303). I'd be surprised if common ballistic reticles are close enough past 300m. Would need a special grendel one.

    2650 would be a nuclear load and there's not enough room for that much powder. Or need a 26" barrel. My 16" matches trajectory at 2350 fps in shooter app out to 600m anyway.

    Would a mildot or half mil or a custom dial/ tape be quick enough to use ?
