I know this is old, but there is very little info here. I have been using the centerpoint 4-16x40 on my .308 bolt action for nearly 1000 rounds without issue.
I use the ar22, made for .22lr, but still recoil "rated" to 416 rigby, on my mini. It is 3-9x32 and is issue free. By contrast, the bushnell 4-12x40 I tried would not maintain zero on the mini, but was not ruined for use on my .223 bolt action.
I have not tried the 4-16x40 centerpoint on the mini, but the .308 recoil is Way more, although not in the forward direction like the mini. I have roughly 500 rounds through the mini on the ar22 optic. I have also used a centerpoint red dot on the mini without issue, as well as an AIM sports reflex sight....all without issue. Hope that helps. I am cheap and a fan of centerpoint. If my mini kills the ar22, I may reconsider, but it has about 2 years of service on my bolt action .22 and two different 10/22s before the mini...thousands of rounds of .22lr.
