1. 4-16x50 (sport dot or tactical)
2. 3-10x44 Tac II
3. 4.5-14x40 APV
4. Eratacator 8.5-25 X 50

My brother in law just bought an APV from SWFA, It looks really good, we will be going to the range soon, and if it works as good as it looks, I'm goin to order a 4x16x50 sport dot.

The APV has good reviews but has clearly been stated not to be used on magnum guns I would like to know some results as well

These are good scopes for the money, although I'd go with the Swift line first.

I own all of the scopes above except for the APV.  They represent good value in optics.  All the scopes have good optical quality and track very well.  The only problem I have with them, is that all except the TAC II, are made in China and the former is made in Japan and is of very good quality.  I talked to the owner of the company and he had one, I say just one sport dot returned after being fired on a 300 Wby. or 300 Win. mag. and did not recommend it on such heavy recoiling rifles.  I am not sure as to whether he was being overly cautious, but he was very friendly and I am sure he would talk to you.  This was about 2 years ago.  The Eradicator is a great scope and sits on my Savage Lo Pro 22-250, which easily shoots less than one half inch groups with premium factory ammo at 100 yards.  I own alot of Swift Premium scopes and except for the TAC II and Eradicator, on an across the board basis, the Swift line up I believe is better.  But, I still chose a Sport Dot over a Burris FF II, as the optics were better, compared side by side for a good hour, to put on my Tikka Hunter, in a 25-06.

One more thing, I actually do not own that specific sport dot, but a couple 3x9s.

I have a 4-16x 50 mm. Mueller.  It is one of their original's I believe.  I would have to open up the safe to find out what the model is.
 
My only complaint is that within 100 shots of purchase it got all fuzzy (due to a lack of a better word) inside the glass. It looks like someone with black hair shaved and sprinkled the shavings inside the scope.  It is pretty annoying, but the gun is zeroed, I don't use this set up in low light conditions, and I'm not gonna ship a cheap scope back for repairs when it is still shooting straight.
 
It is mounted on a .270, so I can't see the issue being due to excessive recoil.

I own three Mueller scopes, two are mounted on 17HMR's, One on a 22-250 as of today they all have done exactly as expexted. No problems so far. For the money they are a good scope and the customer service is exceptional IMHO.....
