Does anyone have experience with this scope with the illuminated FAST PLEX RETICLE? I dont care for the big light switch on top of the eyebell but the reticle looks kind of cool. I saw one for sale for around $300. I was going to get the TAPER PLEX model but found this one for the same price. I was thinking of putting this on a brush gun or muzzleloader. Im just not sure how this reticle will look without the illumination and how well it would work for whitetail deer hunting, sometimes you need to shoot through gaps in the brush and this Fast plex reticle may make it hard to aim through little holes. I would like to hear from anyone who has used one and If I get this scope do you think I could get my $300 out of it if I dont like it?

I would try it, you can probably return it if you just take a look at it and take it around the woods to see what it feels like without mounting it.
 
If you don't like how it turns out there are some other good options.  If it is only brush and heavy cover hunting you can do an Aimpoint or similar 1x red dot.  It's not hard to hit within 6 inches at 200 with no magnification.

This is designed to be a brush hunting African big game scope so it should work fairly well for either a musket or a large bore brush gun like a 45-70.  I like other scopes better for both purposes but it will work and if you are getting a deal on it at $300 that tends to make it more attractive.   I will show you the scopes I like better for brush hunting:
