    Default Good hunting scope for my 300 BLK

    Hi all,
    Looking to do some white tail hunting this year and awaiting my wilson combat 300 BLK and seeing what scope people are using and what their recommendations are.
    Thanks in advance

    Seems that the general consensus is that the .300 round is not much good past 100 yds. There are slug guns with better ballistics. The Wilson Combat is not a very "likable" type of firearm to the anti's and could generate a lot of attention. Just my opinion. I think if I had one, it would just be for fun at the range not to carry in the woods...........................Daniel
    It's not the mountain ahead that wears you out, it's the grain of sand in yer shoe.

    Take a look at his location, they are still allowed to say "F the antis" here we cant because we would be labelled "antiist "

    To the OP, best recommendation is to find a place packing lots of glass and start peeking through some. Given the limitations of the 300BLK I would be opting for a reflex style red dot.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    My apologies to the OP. I did not notice his/her location. I stand by my comment as it goes for this neck of the woods.........Daniel

    In the hunting fields, especially in the deer woods, the .300 BLK is an acceptable, if not overwhelming choice. ... Were I using a Blackout on a deer hunt, I'd most definitely choose a premium hunting bullet in the 125- to 135-grain range, as they'll give the proper terminal ballistics.Aug 8, 2017

    460 meters
    From a 16 in (410 mm) barrel, a 125 gr (8.1 g) 300 BLK round has a lower velocity and similar bullet drop and drift at shorter distances. However, it has the same amount of energy at 700 meters that the M855 has at 500 meters. In terms of hit probability, the Blackout has an effective range of 460 meters.

    I pulled the above from the webb!

    I've tried a lot of scopes and using the Burris fastfire III over the 3 years for whitetails hunting with 300 BLK. Finally, for overall use now I using the Trijicon ACOG 4x32 on my 300 BLK rifles. It has a great review from here: https://ioutdoorpursuit.com/300-blackout-scopes-optics/
