I own both the DX AF-P 70-300mm VR and the full frame Sigma DG 100-400mm OS Contemporary. The former is frequently used on my D7500, the camera I favor for BIF images.

I got the Sigma, though, because I wanted more reach at times. Since it's a FF lens, it yields images from a DX camera with a field of view that reflects the 1.5X crop factor. It's heavier (2.5 pounds) than the DX 70-300mm (slightly less than 1 pound) but it's still easily maneuverable hand held.

I have not been disappointed with the reliability or IQ of either lens. FWIW, if you decide on the Sigma, buy the USB dock which allows one to apply firmware updates and tweak the lens parameters, too.
