Wanting to make this a pig gun. 200 yards max, 60 to 100 normally. Doesn't need to be high end. What say you?

Standard first question, what's your budget?

I like the leupold vx-r patrol or Mark AR 1x-4x24

Less expensive non-illuminated vx2 hog plex.

I went over a tad, but for this price, with these features, I may have to try it out myself.

Oculus. It's a bass pro brand, lifetime warranty, so if anything happens you just take it to local bass pro and they'll take care of it for you. I just got a 3-9x40 plex reticle and fell in love with it. Only $160 and it's quality glass perfect for what you're wanting.

I like the Burris tac 30 1-4x, but it is out of your price range. If your not worried about illuminated reticle just get a 3x9. I've got the same scope this guy is selling. Made in USA, redfield lifetime warranty, good glass. $140

I think I'm going try the Bushnell the FJG linked too, figured if I don't like it the Amazon will take it back.

I've got that same Bushy scope and it is good for the price. The glass is the most odd I've ever looked through but like the reticle and ergonomics.

I'm rethinking the scope thing. my carry handle is fixed and the angle would seem odd to me.
