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".
