    What are people using for 300blk optics these days?

    I guess as usual a red dot is easiest but would have to be rezeroed between subsonic and supersonic? I heard a rumor of some dual-reticle Eotech that addresses this?

    Any good stuff out there now?

    i want one of the new leupolds with the blackout reticle. haven't put my hands on one yet, but am eager to. BDC reticle with supersonic on one side and subsonic on the other. pretty good idea.

    The asymmetrical crosshairs drive me nuts on that thing (not a user though, just a critic). Nikon's version uses dots for one round and loops for the other and would work better for me. However, I think they are both too busy. A grenade quadrant would also be a handy back up sight. :D

    That Leupold does look nice... and I see they are mighty proud of it. :what:

    I have an EO Tech on one and a 6-20x variable scope on the other. I am done with accuracy testing so the 6-20x will be replaced with something else soon. I forget what all I have in inventory.

    The Leupold looks interesting but since I only shoot supersonic 300 BLK, the subsonic info makes the reticle cluttered.

    I have a Nikon 3X P223 on mine. It isn't "calibrated" for .300 BLK, but the marks are still useful.

    For accuracy testing I have a Simmons on mounts I bolt on.

    If I was buying today, I would be looking hard at this Nikon. I actually plan to get one someday, but for now my P223 is working just fine. I can't justify the money for the Leupold, but I am sure it is a fine scope.

    Nikon has a new optic for the 300BO...I believe it's 2x7. Last time I checked...Nikon did not show what bullet weights were used for the hold over.

    For my purposes, no scope manufacturer's bullet-drop compensation system would be accurate enough. It's naive to think that they'd work consistently, given the various bullet weights, barrel lengths and velocities.

    I'm going to mount a red dot on my new .300 Blackout for plinking out to 150 yrds. Also have a 6.5-20 target scope for more serious work. ;)
