In good light and with good technique, the 75-300 can deliver, but over 200mm, the more expensive options work better. Depending on what you want to do, the cheaper 40-150/ 200 options might be better.

The Panasonic 100-300mm II is optically better and a bit faster than the 75-300mm. It also has OIS, supporting DUAL-IS when used with recent Panasonic cameras.

That won't be an option for the original poster, who has an Olympus camera.

And the 40-150mm won't offer the reach they are looking for, unless it's the pro version and used with the 2x teleconverter, but that goes way over the stated budget.
