Has anyone tried the APV on a light kicking centerfire?  I recently purchased a .243 for varminting (dogs/hogs).  I need an entry-level type scope that can be passed on to my next project, a hunting /target rimfire.  I will be upgrading this scope in 12-18 months for the .243, so need something that could be adaptable to both guns.  I am concerned with repeatibility/durability of adjustments.  Also, will the APV stand up to the recoil of the .243?

Have you put the w/e adjustments through it's paces?  Have read a few posts where there were complaints about the adjustments being mushy.  I like everything else I've read about it, but repeatability is important for what I want to do with it.

I thought that the Mueller website claims that this scope is NOT for the bigger calibers.  I don't know what calibers that they are talking about.  We need to e-mail them I guess.  But from the website I got the impression that it is strictly for low recoil stuff.   I don't know why anyone would build something like that .....a scope that is limited to just small stuff..........I don't get that!

I just got off the phone with mueller optics.  They told me they only discourage using them on "rhino rifles".  He said that they have been mounted successfully on just about everything short of a .375, for whatever that's worth.  They said there may be warranty issues for anything bigger.
