I missed the the $2000 budget, there we have Win. Mod. 70 Super grade in .308. You'll have to buy used and shop around, but it can be done.
As far as scopes, I would suggest Leupold VX-III, 2.5-8 power. I don't know what the range is for the hogs, but if it's close, you might even want to go to the 1.5 to 6 power.
