A reflexive optic "dot" does you the most good at close range.
Your iron sights serve you better for medium/long range.
If you have a 200m zero (300m is not so good for a 5.56mm AR), up close your point of impact will be way below your point of aim. For that reason, a "red dot" zeroed for CQB with a back-up (lollipop style) iron sight zeroed for further targets is the way it is done.
