Good to see; feral hogs are a plague and cause tremendous damage. There should be a bounty on them.

Those damn hogs ain't as stupid as they look, they catch on quick to any kind of trap or daylight hunting

They are even considering going through process to get a silencer for 223 as well
We've been considering getting a trust set up for silencers but if you've ever shot one at night it's pretty loud, relatively speaking.

However if I am correct those scopes are about 6500 or so
The price has come down a little. And the toys are what make life's playground fun...

Final PS, it is a .308 M&P AR10 and the recording box comes with the scope. Sighting in is digital and easy; imaging hitting on target then just moving a digital crosshair to where the bullet hit and being balls on.

PPS; I don't work for this company or know anybody from it.
