I'm in the market for 2 new rifles scopes - one for a TC Encore Prohunter .223 that I'll use to coyote hunt out to 300 yards, and one for a Remington Classic 7mm-08 for whitetails and hopefully a Pronghorn hunt in the future.

While I love fine rifles and rifle scopes, I'm considering value priced optics with clear optics, good shock resistance, and repeatability under $400, rather than go with Zeiss Conquest or Leupold VXIII models.

Went with a Mueller 4-14X40 AO on a new Savage .17 HMR last year. I've been pleased with the optics and consistent accuracy. Of course we're talking 60 - 100 yard shots on crows and squirrels, not 600 yard varmint ranges.

Based on that success and the value, I'm considering 2 new Muellers for the .223 and 7mmm-08.

Would appreciate input about the Mueller scopes for larger calibers and overall quality.

My father always taught me, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." I'll make an exception in this case. My experiences with the Muellers have not been good. You might get away with using them on light recoiling 223s and 7mm-08s  but I wouldn't go with anything stronger. Personally, I would go with the Bushnell Elite 4200s. Great scope, great prices, especially the 3-9X40. The Muellers I had were assembled in China and did not track well, especially at distances over 100-150 yds. The two calibers you mentioned are long range, flat shooters.  Would hate to lose a Pronghorn at 250+ yds to poor optic. Just my opinion.

Thanks for your input. Field experience counts. That's why I'm hoping to get input from experienced users.

The APV is theoretically rated for non-magnum centerfires but it wouldn't be my choice. I do have an Eradicator on one of my 22s but although it's pretty decent clarity wise I'd never buy another.

I'd rather see you spend $220 for a Nikon Team, or if you insist on a Mueller go with a Tac II. I haven't tried one yet but they do have a good rep. A less expensive alternative might be a Weaver V9 or V10 or daytime use or maybe for twilight a Simmons Whitetail Classic 6.5-20x50. It's huge but SWFA has them for $99.
