I hunt long range in Arizona (coues whitetail) and have a Swarovski 6-18x50 AV with the BR reticle..    It is not yet mounted on the 7mm mag. but have been trying to find out if there is anything that equals it or is better.   ( Larger field of view primarily with clarity).

Scopes that have caught my eye are:

Leupold VX3 6.5-20x40  or 50
Sightron SIII 6-24x50
Burris Black Diamond 4-16x50

I have Mueller Tac II on an old .223 and I swear the huge field of view and ease of pulling it up and it being able to see quickly with it is awesome...  It seems that with most of the above scopes it is like looking down a narrow tunnel (no pun) and it is difficult at times to get a quick focus when first looking into them..

Looking at the ones you've listed, keep the Swaro. If you still want larger FOV look at the z6 (3-18x50).

+1 on what Mike said.  The Z6 is a great scope, but she aint cheap.
