Need help choosing and mounting a scope for my new gun. Will mostly be shooting pigs with it.

Hard request to answer without more info. What ranges? Open range or cover? I prefer Nikon brand, but there are others that have great reputations. Mounts? A PEPR is hard to beat but a bit pricey. Weaver has a mount that is very similar for half the cost. I use both and either is great. I assume you aren't needing night vision?
There's a fine line between BRAVE ... and STUPID.

The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.

Distances you are shooting at? A clone Eotech or red dot could be a good choice and very easily put on.

MTAC is great mounted in a PEPR. I've never taken mine past 100, but it's performed admirably from 10-100 yards.

Wife has a Nikon P223 4-12 in the Nikon P223 rings and loves it. It's on her S&W AR15 Sport

If you're using primarily on pigs you should buy a scope with good light transmission. You likely be shooting in low light or dark with a light of some sort.
