I'm glad to read this. I've been wanting to get a higher than 20x scope for my rifle just for the shooting range and am seriously considering a mueller eradicator or the other one they have in mil-dot. They had great reviews on midway, especially for price.
I'm using the 8.5X25 on a 6mm Norma BR I built on a Savage SA centerfeed action. Eye relief is critical with all the Muellers but I believe that's an advantage..makes me cheek the stock the same place every time.
I also have the 4.5X14 APV on a 7mm/08 sporter built on a Savage 110 stagger feed action. I glass bedded the action in a walnut stock I bought from Brownells. The APV is mounted in Weaver 4X4 rings an an EGW one piece base. With my handloads using 120 grain Nosler BT's I'm getting 5 shot groups at 100 yards of .632" and an average velocity of 2957 fps.
No guns allowed in Japan, so I have to wait until summer when I go back to the US where my guns are. I honestly still don't have a gun picked out to use it on. Looking at a target style 17 hm2 for cheap 100 yard paper punching.
My 4.5X15 APV is great on my 7mm/08. I had a 8.5X25 on my 6mmBR but am replacing it as the image is too cloudy/fuzzy. No amount of adjustment would help. Sold it and am waiting for a Vortex Crossfire 6X24X50 to arrive.
