Any suggestions on a good 300 AAC scope under 500 or right at ? I will shoot subsonic rounds so max range is 100 yards . Doing a barrel swap , maybe getting 9 inch noveske barrel . Open for barrel suggestions as well if it's 9 inches . Believe this will be a fun rifle and reduced sound signature will be a great benefit . Thank you .

I just purchased the Nikon P-300.  I love it.  I"ve had a Nikon Laser IRT for years and have used their SpotOn for all that time.  SpotOn works very well with this scope.  For the price, it is a real deal.  I wish it was Illuminated.  But for under $200.00, it can't have everything.  They also make an M-300, more features, but quite a bit more expensive… almost 5 times the cost.  I like the P-300 reticle.  It has plenty of adjustment range for my needs and for hogs and varmints, should be excellent.  
I don't ever intend to use the BLK beyond about 200yards…mostly at 100-150.  I'm going to shoot it subsonic suppressed almost exclusively.  Ballistic performance subsonic is slightly better than .46 ACP.

Suppressed is the way I want to go . They have a bill on the floor for it . Hoping to buy one of those as soon as it becomes legal .

Wait, wait, wait. "Reduced sound" and unsuppressed 9" barrel do not belong together, whether subsonic or super.

There is s chance the bill passes and a chance it does not. I'd wait on all this if the only way you get a can is if it passes.

All that said, you want something with lots of drop on an FFP reticle. I like Christmas tree reticles, but that is a personal preference.

My 300 wears a vortex HD gen2 1.6X and is a good fit. I wanted a bit more mag than 4X on top.

I have a 300BLK pistol with a 10.5" barrel.  Suppressors are not allowed where I live, so I shoot it with subs unsuppressed.

They are notably quieter than any supersonic round, but louder than the same subs in the 16" barrel (for obvious reasons).

Thank you sir . I'm in Delaware and hoping they come to senses on suppression laws . What optics do you favor on a 300 rig ?

Noveske makes a great barrel, but not cheap. I bought a 16" at brownells a few years ago, was $160, good barrel.

And as Koshkin said, loud, but not as loud. A 9" with subs will be louder than a handgun or shotgun, less than an m4, nowhere near ear safe without hearing protection.

I went to a 16" with subs and a can to see how quiet I could get it. In the end, I decided I could take a bit more for a more maneuverable gun, now have a 9" noveske, 15" rail, and a nested can, good setup.

Invest in an adjustable gas block too.

Good advice on gas block . You running a heavy buffer or just fine tuning via gas block .

i went with a Seekins barrel.  It has far exceeded my accuracy expectations.

Seekins barrels are awesome. They are hand lapped, button rifled, rock creek barrels. I have a 8" 300 blk and a 18" 223 wylde.

I too have had success with Seekins. When I needed my current barrel, they were all backordered - probably because they are a better deal than noveske.

Noticed that . I'm in no hurry to buy so it's cool . Looking to have it done by end of summer . Currently building backstop and cutting shooting lanes along the river . Was hauling mortar sand in but my buddy said I was a idiot cause the river bed is all sand and literally right next to back stop . He's right lol . Too close to project is my excuse . Once again I appreciate all the wisdom .

For a scope for the 300 I second the SS 1-4, or a Viper PST 1-4.

A Strike Eagle 1-6 is a decent option, too but the Viper will have better glass and you don't really need more than 4x on a 300.

There is A LOT of discussion about HPA and the opinion is it will take up to 2 years for it to pass.  So don't wait for it to pass if you really want a suppressor.  Just do a trust and get it.

Believe me it's worth it.  I have a Griffin Recce 7 and shooting anything suppressed (Super or Sub) is so much more relaxed.  The concussion, recoil and noise are all markedly reduced.

I disagree on the "don't need more than 4X", I actually prefer a 10X. As I said, subsonic is all about shot placement and a 4X isn't ideal at 100 yards for putting a 1/3 inch object into a 1/2 inch target.

Might my match my SWFA 3x15x42 up to it for now and see what I can get from this platform . The 3x9x42 HD has my attention . I'm with you , I do the majority of my shooting in 9 or 10 . Aim small miss small . The fixed 10 x also gets me excited . I have a set of offset irons for close targets and they work , quite well . Thanks again gentlemen.

I have 2.5-10x scopes on two of my 300 blk's.  I like having 10x as well.  I like to shoot my subs out to 2 and 300 yards.  I think that is a lot of fun and having 10x makes that much easier.
