I am running a Bushnell Trophy XLT 1-4X24 with a 4A reticle and a 1 moa illuminated red dot built in. Optisan is similar but cheaper. Dont know how good.

Take a look at the little Leupold 1.5-4X20 "African."

A little over your $300 target, but well worth it.

Bushnell makes an optic that looks almost identical, way cheaper and functions perfectly. I have a buddy who uses one and he loves it.

If you are keeping your shots inside 100 yards as previously stated you wouldn't really need drop compensation for a AR chambered in .223/5.56. A 25yd zero would have you hitting just slightly high at 100 yds as the bullet wouldn't have reached the high point of its arc yet.

There's cheap junk for sale everywhere. You will know it by it's price tag.
