Here are two more. Both are at ISO 100 and shot at F/7.1. Both are also shot with an SB900 flash with the diffuser attached.
As for your comment about ISO 6400, your "untrained eyes" work quite well. That was my reason for starting this thread, since IMHO the D3200 may be the best high ISO DX camera body, to date.
The top two were shot at 260mm and the bottom two at 300mm. I'm not sure about the crop ratio here. I thought that they were both 100%, but the bottom one may be less.
Edit: I suspect that you are more interested in the performance of the 55-300 than the low light performance of the D3200, and although that question is probably better addressed in the Nikkor Auto-Focus Lens Forum, I can assure you that this lens is extremely competent. IMO, it far exceeds the IQ of older Nikkor lenses that cost double or even triple the price. Here is a link to a review from a very well respected authority.
