Hey guys. First post. In the process of researching scopes for longer distance shooting this forum kept popping up. So you guys apparently are a very knowledgeable group! Here's my situation. Going on my first hog hunt in March with my new AR10. So in my future (next year) is a ~$2-3k thermal sight for this rifle. I hunt and shoot on our property where a 100-150 yard shot is long (Tenn hills). Been a Leupold and Nikon guy but reading here Nightforce and Vortex keep popping up. I'll put my budget at $500-700 for a scope leaning more towards tactical shooting. Midway has the Vortex Viper PST Gen II 3-15x44 illuminated on sale. I've read here NF is higher quality, but also about double the price to get a comparable scope. So, given my budget, is a Vortex product (or the one mentioned above) my best bang per buck? I've got much to learn about zero stop, etc. Apples to apples in this price range Vortex best value. Thanks for helping me spend my money!
