I need compact, lightweight, with good light transmission scope. That I need to put on my 4.5lb 6.5 Grendel. Not planning to take farther that 300 yards at 8-10” target. BDC is a plus, lower power 2 or less, 1200$ max.

Thank you

You CAN spend $1200.

You COULD get something pretty nice for less. 😊

● 11.8" short
● 25.4oz light

● FoV: 56—9.6ft (@ 100y)

● FFP, with thick outside posts to guide the eyes to the crosshairs at lower magnifications — AND with a circle for quick target acquisition.

● 25MOA/turn turrets

● 110MOA elevation adjustment range

● BDC reticle:

● Reticle manual: https://athlonoptics.com/wp-content...-FFP-IR-MOA-Reticle-Manual-Helos-BTR-GEN2.pdf



The scopes is the Athlon Helos BTR 2-12x42 AHMR2 FFP MOA (Gen. 2!)

(They have it in MIL as well, with an evenly spaced, non-BDC grid-style reticle.)

Thank you. I do like it but 25oz kills purpose of lightweight rifle.

It seems like a lot of turret scopes are going to be a bit heavy. I’ve looked into this as well, I like the maven RS.2. It’s a more basic scope but I am pretty sure they have a bdc reticle and they are an American product.

This checks all but one box for you. Only 11oz, doesn’t have BDC reticle but does have the custom dial system. There is also a 1.5-4 Mark 3HD that has a BDC option.

Your timing is perfect as we just started our Store Wide 4th of July Sale Now through July 5th. Give a call, 516-217-1000, to discuss what would be best for you
I’ll second this, these guys are wonderful to work with and very knowledgeable. I called them a while back about trading in a scope and Doug was honest and straight forward with me about what my scope was worth vs what he could give me for it. I ended up just keeping my scope, but the next time I need a new optic, I’ll be calling these guys.
