Hi there fellas. Iam new to this forum. Been lurking around a bit though. I am trying to do some research for a new scope. Budget is $300-$350.
Going to be mounted on a Remington 700 SPS in .308.
Uses:
Target practice to 100yds. and maybe some HOG hunting in Fl. Maybe out to 150yds max.
I would prefer variable and side focus, but I know in my price range, side focus probably wont make it. Illuminated reticle would be nice since hunting will be done at dawn or dusk. I have looked at Millet, Hawke, Falcon, SS, Bushnell, Leupold, Meuller, etc. I hear good. ABout to purchase then hear bad. I just cant find anything. I know budget is very small considering buying optics, but that is all i can for now.

For the distances you are shooting, I would not worry to much about having a parallax adjustable scope.  Its just not going to make any difference.  Plus if you stay under 10x you it is not as much of a concern either. 

Scopes in the price range you listed are not going to have illumination that is worth a darn.  You could go with something like this.  http://swfa.com/Bushnell-3-9x40-Elite-Rifle-Scope-P48260.aspx  You charge the reticle with a flashlight and it glows for a while.  Plus is has a nice heavy reticle that will be good for low light. 

I would look into 3-9x scopes from Bushnell elite, Vortex Viper, Sightron S2.  I have scopes from all three of those brands and have been very happy with them.

These are great for the price and would work well with what your doing

Even though it doesnt have the side focus I think the 2-7 viper with C3 would work good for hog hunting

Only problem with the 2-7x viper is the reticle is real thin.  So for real low light hog hunting it might not be the best choice.  I just got my 2-7x Viper with C3 today, looks to be a dandy scope though.

Good info ST, i had thought all along the C3 was bold enough for low light.

I found this there, it kinda fits your bill except side focus.

Would a fixed scope work better? I used a fixed scope once, 4x32. Was Ok, but hard to see target at 100yds. Maybe a SS 10X32. I know, not many features of what i wanted, but for the budget I know i cant ask for much!
