most of them have severe washout issues on bright days and against green or dark backgrounds.
I think you are referring to laser sights. That's not a red dot. Unless maybe red dots have the same issue.
I have a 1-4x scope and I think this is fantastic for the range you are talking about. I think mine is a Burris, around $300 but I'm sure you could find one in your price range. At 1x its very easy to shoot with both eyes open like a reflex sight, and at 4x you are good for at least 200 yards. Otherwise I have a Burris reflex (red dot) sight that is very accurate to 100 yards. About $150
