    For hunting coyotes, hogs, deer, or whatever it is that you'll be going for, you don't need a tactical 1500-3000 dollar optic. Look at leupold, or better yet redfield for a less expensive view of your proposed target. Just my humble opinion. I have a 3-9x52mm redfield revenge with hunter reticle on its way to me as we speak. This will be my hog/ coyote scope. It has a cool feature that you could find very helpful whilst hunting hog. Check it out.

    I don't thank nearly enough because I use tapatalk most of the time....

    As in, just the EoTech. Tried the magnifier and decided that it wasn't as useful as I'd initially thought (and that's not because it somehow hindered the .308's capabilities). I just got tired of the damn thing. That's not to say I'm somehow against using a magnified optic on my SCAR. Not at all. I think more than anything, the little kid in me just gets a big ass grin from using a wrecking ball on targets within a 300m radius.

    When you think about it... it could also be because I'm a nut. Either way, I'm most certainly enjoying myself!

    My uses are near identical to yours. I started with a 3.5x ACOG but settled on a NF 2.5-10x32 with NP-1 reticle. I have previously used the mil-dot reticle but the reticle was too thin/faint for hunting in brush and shadowy areas. Hope this helps.

    The ACOG was awesome but lacked the extra magnification and 100 yard+ accuracy potential. I like shooting long distance.

    I'm finding my Elcan Dr1-4 works great for all my needs so far at 0-300 yds. Also have a ACOG 3.5 TA11J308G that also is excellent, but the Elcan is currently riding the rail the most.

    That is what I have been leaning towards. When you get it, let us know what you think JG.
