Is there a good 2 x something x mildot scope that wont break the bank
that is a good solid scope, no junk, that ranges at its highest power under $500.

Prefer 2x for the brush.
2.5x is too close to 3X and the Sightron S1 3-9x mildot is a decent scope and cheap.
Not too heavy. Don't really want any heavy 32 oz scopes.

Top power of 10x, 12x, 16x would be nice.

I know Counter sniper makes a 2-16x scope but its heavy at 30oz and I dont know what it ranges at or anything about the quality.

FFP would be better but probably too expensive.
 
The only thing I can find is to have a 2-7X custom done in the leupold shop for an extra $150, but 7x is not really enough magnification for really long distance

This is for a moderately heavy recoil rifle 338/284 (30-35#) for hunting
hogs from the brush out to 600-700 yard.

The Sightron would certainly work. If you sneak the low end up a bit, then you might look at The Bushy Elite 3200 4-12 X 40 with the DOA. Another possibility is the Burris FFII with the B-Plex or the TAC 30 4.5-14 X 42 with mill dot.

Okay, pass on the counter sniper.

Sneaking up from 2x to 4x is more like a huge jump when you are hunting in dense brush with a 15-20 yard shot.

There are a number of 4-12x mildot scopes around in the $200-300 range.
I have one on hold for my 308.

I already have a 2-7X LR reticle leupold, but I will occasionally be shooting a 250 gr 338 Scenar, BC of .670 or so at 2600 fps for long distance and it will hold up past 1000 yards.

I have one field I hunt in that is 850 yards long.

A 2-12X SixX burris is really about right but I really want a mildot scope and the ballistic plex reticle doesnt line up to well with that load.
