I have shot longer ranges for a few years and even the basic Mil-Dot, at 800 yards covers a generous portion of the target. It's annoying when you are trying to really put rounds in the right place.
Now with an AR, it's more about an initial full body hit, with a couple of follow up hits as needed to subdue (read: END) the threat.
A 4MOA dot is going to be awesome room to room or across the street to the mook behind the old rusted out Buick. But if you have to shoot down 3 city blocks at a partially obscured target? Not so much.
2MOA is going to be much more forgiving, especially on man sized targets, but far from perfect for putting rounds in a tight formation.
It comes down to application. Are you really building a CQB weapon that you want to stretch to 270 yards? I would honestly suggest an EoTech with their 4X magnifier that can be added and removed in the drop of a hat.
Great set up, but expensive.
LaRue makes a quick mount that returns to zero with two levers that allows you to pull a glass optic and replace it with a heads-up, CQB style when you need to go close. But also expensive.
It comes down to what YOU
want for accuracy and what YOU
are willing to pay.
I have an EoTech on my 18" Larue with a set of flip ups from YHM if I lose battery power because of the EMP fired by the space zombies.
But I also have a take down bolt gun that fits in a backpack if I need to deliver a punch at range.
To each his own, just make sure it works for you.
