I did a lot of shooting, when I was younger, but only with iron sights.  Have no experience with scopes or red dot sights.    I'm looking at sights for an AR type weapon (the new Colt in .308 is high on my list).  I was kind of curious about red dot signts.  In particular, the Bushnell 2X MP tactical red dot.  Are these any good for distances of 100 yards or more?  Do they work well in bright sun?  I want something that works well in low light at close range, but I still want to be able to take the long shot if I need to.

stay away from red dots with magnification
and a 308 AR is going to to be hard on cheap ones

Spend a little more and get an Aimpoint and be done with it

You can hold 2" groups with one at 100 yards and 12" plates at 250 yards easy with one


Buy this and be happy for a LONG time
