I have a new AR-458 SOCOM for hog eradication at night( and some coyotes as well) what night vision rifle mounted scope will hold up to the recoil?

I have an ATN X-sight II, it has spent time on my .458 SOCOM (which has relatively mild recoil, about the same as a 30-06).  The 4k Pro should do quite nicely as NV... I also have a THOR LT... It has been on multiple rifles, I fired 10 rounds on my Ruger #1 .458 WinMag just for kicks (get it... just for kicks...), but it is mostly on my 300BLK.  No issues due to the time on the WinMag.  I would not leave it on that rifle long... but a SOCOM should be no issue.  Both of those scopes have been "better than expected".  I wish the view screen on the X-sight II was larger, wish the array was bigger on the LT... but for the price it is quite good.  I am happy with both.  I do not believe there will be any issues due to the SOCOM.

I own a Bushnell DMR2 and can confirm it's a solid recommendation under $1k. I was shopping for a ~$500 optic initially, like Sightmark or Vortex https://wildproofgear.com/best-scopes-under-500/ , but stretched my budget a bit to get one on clearance and am glad I did. Mine is mounted to my 6.5 Creedmoor AR and I love the reticle, glass quality, and features for the price.

OP's question concerned NIGHT VISION... hunting at night...
