Optics options for .300 blackout

Just picked up an Lwrc AR in .300 blackout, and I need an optic that will have some sort of dot, or illumination for low light coyote and hog hunts. I would like enough magnification for 100-120 yard shots. The internet is almost overwhelming with info, so I figured Id get some recommendations here. Id like to stay under $250 if possible.

Thanks.

You can get the Bushnell AR 300 blackout with an illuminated dot BDC reticle and 1-4 magnification for about $225 real world price. I've got two Bushnell AR optics (neither are this specific model) and they're both great for the money. I've shot the illuminated FFP .223 BDC one as well and it is pretty nice at the cost point. Personally I went with the Burris M-TAC for my 300 build. Cost about 350 real world price. Link to the Bushnell below

Great optic - laser etched and illuminated reticle. The chevron tip makes for a great aiming point. BDC ranging works well. PA has some of the best reticle options out there.

I have and like this one too, the P-300BLK with the cantilevered P-series mount. Although the OP stated he wants an illuminated reticle. This model is not illuminated. Sadly. Id love to have this illuminated myself. Never thought I needed that feature, but now that Ive bought several illuminated scopes, I want ALL of my scopes to have that feature. Even in bright daylight, I really like it and I grudgingly hold it against all my scopes that dont have it.

If it's only 100 yards just get a red dot.

Lot's of great scope's out there for your .300 BO rifle. I am not sure how it happened but I now have 5 or is it 6 .300 BO rifle's. The latest is a Ruger American and I can tell you it is a 1.5 MOA rifle with a suppressor on it shooting Gemtec 187 gr subsonic ammo. I recently shot a coyote at 70 yards while deer were under a feeder 125 yeards away and they didn't spook. On the American I put a Nikon PROSTAFF 5 3.5-14x50 BDC in First Focal Plane. I really like the scope but the FFP does add to the expense. Nikon does have a PROSTAFF 5 3.5-14x50 Nikonplex that is illuminated. A scope that Nikon came out with last year that I had on a .300 BO AR but recently moved to a 9mm AR is the Black Force1000. This is a 1-4 30mm tube with an illuminated Speedforce reticle.It has 10 intensity setting's so no worries about washing out your target. My son has taken multiple hogs here in TX using the Black Force1000 on a suppressed .300 BO AR. A heck of a package for under $400.

This yerar Nikon has redesigned many of the P-Series of scopes. Gone are the plastic cap's now replaced with alluminum. Newly designed turret's with laser etched marking's. The P-300 BLK is now the P-Tactical 300BLK. Same price with a bunch of new feature's. All of these scope's can be dialed in using Spot On for excellent downrange accuracy. As always, feel free to drop me a note if you have any question's.

Here's a pic of my BLACK Force1000 when I had it on a 5.56 AR. My son used it in a local carbine competition and loved it. Shown here with Nikon's BLACK Series mount's.
