Looking for one in good condition, preferably with rings. I have lots to trade or will buy outright depending on the price. Let me know what you have and maybe we can work something out.

From OpticsPlanet:

Nikon has developed the all-new M-300 BLK riflescope to maximize the effectiveness of the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge while using both supersonic and subsonic ammunition. Now, shooters have a 30mm body riflescope that can harness both variations of this up-and-coming cartridge. The M-300 BLK is available with an illuminated reticle to give shooters an added advantage during low-light situations. The illuminated reticle can be adjusted to different brightness settings using the push buttons on the eyepiece and has up to 32 different levels of intensity for the orange center dot. When the illumination feature is turned off, the last brightness level is saved. Engineered for minimum weight and maximum strength and durability, Nikon builds these scopes from aircraft grade aluminum alloy and utilizes larger internal lenses for maximum resolution. Larger tubes allow for the best resolution, wider windage and elevation travel, and superior low-light performance. Nikon engineered the entire optical system in the M-300 BLK to provide the shooter with maximum brightness and maximum light transmission. The result is an extraordinarily clear sight picture. To simplify field adjustments, Nikon has integrated this feature into the M-300 BLK riflescopes. Just sight-in as usual, then lift the spring-loaded adjustment knob, rotate to your "zero", and reengage. Field adjustments are now as simple as dialing-in your subsequent ranges. Reticle adjustments are made in 1/4-inch click-stop moves you can both feel and hear, and with no backlash to make your shot creep off target. Positive click reticle adjustments get you zeroed in quicker and maintain your setting-even with repeated recoil and under rugged conditions. The M-300 BLK, like all of Nikon's riflescopes, is optimized for use with Nikon Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. Spot On allows you to discover all of the exact aiming points on your scope's reticle at various yardages for your specific ammunition and load. Nikon riflescopes are covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. If any Nikon riflescope is found to have defects in workmanship or materials, we will, at our option, repair or replace it at no charge.

I tested pre production samples for NIKON. These are not worth the money. If you REALLY want a Nikon get a P22. It is the same scope but the reticle is usable and comes with extra turrets.

I put the 1,200fps turret on the scope. I set it to 50 yards but actually zeroed at 40 yards. The drops on the turret matches out to 150 yards with subsonic loads.

Rapid Reticle makes a nice scope for the Blackout.

I’ve been doing the 300 Blackout thing since before it was a SAAMI caliber. I even designed a 265g bullet for it then licensed it to a manufacturer.

Exactly what I'm looking for except with illumination, but for a bolty pistol build. I've got an EXP2-2 on my 7.5" AR in 300BO. I've checked other optics and don't like their reticles. The M300 fits my bill.

The BDC reticle will not match up to standard distances. You are going to have things like 137 yards, 263, 327 etc. Also, the center of the reticle is very thick making precise shots very, very hard.

I've been doing the 300 Blackout thing since before it was standardized. I have even designed bullets specifically for the 300 Blackout then licensed them.

I have tried every 300 Blackout specific scope out there. The Nikon is one of the worst, both in use as well as repeatability and durability.
