You might be surprised at the quality of some of the cheaper scopes. I picked up a Simmons ProHunter Masterpiece Series scope real cheap. It never fogs up no matter the temperature or humidity. It does not drift or give me any grief at all. For $15 you can not find a better scope. I bought the scope for $5 at a yard sale. Simmons charged $10 for shipping to replace the scope with a new scope. The Pro Hunters cost $120 at Walmart.

In one of the photos it appears there is something going on at the front if the barrel.... Is it threaded, or ported?

Yeah, it's threaded for a muzzle device. A lot of guys run them suppressed but I will be limited to a brake in IL. I've been looking at the spikes Dynacomp. Saw a photo of one on a 700 aac and if nothing else, it looked pretty sweet.

I have to agree about the Simmons White Tail Classic. It is heavy, has a small eye box(sweet spot), and small turret knobs. Other than these minor issues it is well worth the $130.00 I paid for it. The glass is decent and has held zero for 2 years and about 50 coyote stands. We'll see how well it holds up to the .308.

Finally got a chance to break in the new rifle. My break method was 1 shot, clean for first 10 rounds and then 5 shots clean for next 30 rounds. I now have 40 cases ready to work up a load. The range was only 50 yards but I am happy with the guns performance so far.

I posted my best group of the session. I was having chambering issues when loading the internal mag with 4 rounds and then inserting one in the chamber. After the second shot the third round didn't want to chamber. When I only loaded 4 it chambered flawlessly. I should have quit after my first 4 shots created one ragged hole. Instead I loaded the fifth round and shot low. All shots were off a hornady delta front rest.

Nice long range set up, but as you said you are already aware of, the big scope and 20 MOA mount are a bit much. I lived in central Texas until I went into the Army, and remember more shots at 20 to 75 yards than at longer ranges. I'd think a lighted dot Leupold in 1.4x or even 2-7x would be great for hog hunting, especially in low light or after dark. I have a Remington "Varmint" SPS heavy barrel .308. I got it because it was left hand, figuring I'd put a better stock and trigger on it later as finances allow. For now, I took off a 4-12x Vortex off of my CZ.22 to put on the .308, but am shopping for a nice scope for the Remington. Looking at a Leupold VX-6 3-18 side focus, illuminated Boone and Crockett reticle. I could have 18x for small groups and long range, but have a lighted reticle 3x for closer shots. Another good one is the Zeiss HD 3-15x nice z 800 reticle but not lighted a bit cheaper than the Leupold at $950. Those heavy barrel Remingtons are capable of some amazing accuracy, mine and a friend"s group all the shots at 100 into less than 1/2".
