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 Iíd get some recommendations here. Iíd 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

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

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 think you can get a 1-8 Primary Arms with the ACSS reticle. You'd be very well covered for the 300BO.
Oops, only 1-6. Still great.

My father in law has a leupold vx-r 1-4 firedot on this same rifle. Sighted in at hap baker at 100 yards. Itís slightly more than you want to pay but the quality is there. He has some very nice optics but swears this is perfect for this rifle.

Lanboís armory usually has the best price on these. Iíve seen them as low as 406 but I havenít looked in a while. They usually have a higher priced listed with a ď add to cart for a lower priceĒ tab.

I know this is higher than what you posted but wanted to give you an additional selection based off of mine and his experience shooting this rifle and scope combo.

Good luck and happy researching
