For pigs? Going for distance ? Simple EO Tech works well.

Don't get a scope with built in ballistics crap. They are junk. They only work if you reload your ammo to match the reticle, then you need to make sure your reticle is set to that power setting, since its second focal plane, to even be correct. Waste of money. Get the new Sig Tango 4 and just dial if you need to.

I use an ACOG for mine. If I run my subs and a can then I have to re zero my ACOG

My wife thinks I only have 3 guns

Eotech EXPS 2-0 with a 3x magnifier on QD mount.

If you're on a budget, Holosun HS510C

I have both set ups, both work fine.

Primary Arms have ACCS scope for 300blk caliber . with that budget , you can top it off with nice solid mount and some left over for ammo

I just put a PA 1-6x24 with KISS reticle on my 300 blk rifle. I went with the KISS reticle because (for me) the ACCS is too busy.

I often like "TRIJICON ACOGs" for AR rifles.

The TA11 is my favorite ACOG, itís large and heavy but has the best eye relief and I love mine. However itís a lot of optic for what I feel is a 300 yd rifle. I have an Aimpoint on my 300 BLK and have also run a Weaver V31-3x.

I built a 300BLK to hunt pigs years ago and bought a Leupold 4x12 FireDot for it. IIRC was on sale for about $400 or so. Mount was another $100. Never hunted with it and changed to a Trijicon RMR.

I like the Trijicon Accupoint 3x9 best, but that is a bit more than you mentioned. (Have that on my Ruger 7mm mag and it's my go to pig gun)


My thoughts were that I would likely be shooting a black pig in the shadows in low light, so the illuminated reticle is a very handy thing to have, and it gives magnification for longer shots. (for me, that's 200 yards or so)

For shorter ranges you might consider a Trijcon Accupoint in 1x4. I've taken a couple deer and pigs with it on my .450 Bushmaster.

Prices seem to have gone up on these quite a bit in the last couple years but there are some used deals out there. Hope this helps.
