Which scope for a 460 XVR?

I recently purchased a 460 XVR for the purpose of whitetail deer hunting here in Missouri as they recently changed muzzleloader season to "alternative method" season. This now allows the use of centerfire pistol. I've looked around at pistol scopes but they don't really seem all that impressive. What I'm looking at now is a Nightforce 1-4x24. This gun will be shot from a bipod and it is the 12" model. What do you guys recommend as all the pistols I have are for personal protection and I've never used one to hunt. Thank you for your help.

A friend of mine has the same gun with the leupold vxIII 2.5 x8 x32. I've shot it and it works great. It looked clear and bright to me, but I've never tested it in low low light.

$1330 shipped. It was on gunbroker from a store in Alabama, brand new. I called and asked what kind of deal I could get if I didn't go through gunbroker and this is what they came up with. Sorry I never got back to you. I meant to and kind of forgot about it actually.


Thanks for the ideas on the scopes. I was hoping I wasn't the only one thinking of putting a rifle scope on a pistol.

I haven't shot my 460 yet, but I just got theTrijicon and love it oy 308. I question if I should be putting scout scope on the 469? From what I'v
e seen on youtube, I don't think the eye relief will do on a normal scope? I think i would be better off with a 4x fixed scooe or an aimpoint. I don't want that hammer to take my eye out?! Opinions?

Shot my gun today for the first time. Fired 5 rounds. It's pretty amazing the wave of recoil that it sent up my arm. Mounted my atlas bipod to it when I got home and I'm anxious to see how that affects the recoil. I've gotta get a scope on it and start seeing what kind of groups I can get.

She's a real kicker huh? Do you need a lot of eye relief? Scout scope?
