well on recommendation of a friend of mine and after taking a quick look thru it plus the positive reviews I bought the millet trs1 4-16 scope. when i got it it looked just ok. mounted it up and used it , while it seems to be accurate and dialed in quickly Ive got to say the glass on this thing sucks and eye relief is super critical. I have several scopes that i use and dont have issues with but dont really like this one not to mention in low light its relatively worthless even with the large objective. do i have a lemon or are they all like this, for the price i expected better. even my inexpensive mueller apv 4-14 blows this thing away in all aspects.

They suck. That's why the good people of this fine forum try, sometimes in vain, to dissuade shooters from these scopes. 

Sorry.

no more than 300.00 and going on a 26"heavy barrel bolt action  308. I want to do some longer range shooting, range by me has gongs out to 500 yds , maybe further . also occasional hog blasting from a stand at mornig and dusk. would like something that is clear , FORGIVING EYE RELEIF, 14 to 16 power,  works well at low light , mill dots prefered or ranging reticle and or possibly target , illumination not necessary. I guess thats alot to ask. Im thinking about just getting a mueller apt 4-14 just beacuase its more than ok for the price or that bushnell legend hd4-14.

The aforementioned SS 3-9x, though slightly over your stated budget, does solve a lot of your problems, my friend.

Just remember, better glass will always trump more magnification... IE,  cheap scope with more power won't be as good as a nice glass with lower mag.
