Nikon is the latest company to roll out a specific bit of gear designed around the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge. The P-300 is a rifle scope that is specifically designed for AR-style rifles chambered for the 300 BLK round.
The new Nikon P-300 is a 2-7×32 scope that uses a new reticle that is calibrated to work with both sub- and supersonic ammo. The reticle is called BDC SuperSub, and it is has open circle aiming points every 100 yards up to 600 yards with hashmarks indicating 50 yard increments.
The glass is multicoated and is said to provide up to 98% light transmission. The scope is waterproof and fogproof. It comes with a lifetime warranty.
“When you look at what the .300 Blackout cartridge can do in terms of effectiveness, it really is an amazing caliber. Nikon is excited to jump into the mix and give shooters a riflescope that was designed from the ground up to match the ballistic profiles of .300 AAC Blackout,” said Jon LaCorte, senior product marketing manager of Nikon Sport Optics.
MSRP on the new Nikon P-300 is $199.95.
