Help choosing scope

I just purchased a S&W PERFORMANCE CENTER MODEL 460XVR HUNTER Black & Stainless, 14" Fluted barrel With .50BMG Look Muzzle Brake! Flat Top Picatinny Rail Mounting System For Red Dot or Magnifying Scope. Comes with 6"-9" Adjustable Bi-Pod, Sling & S&W Performance Center Soft Case.

Can anyone suggest a good scope for this rig.Thanks for any help!!

    2x Leupold handgun scope. I have also used the 4x fixed Leupy as well on a FA 454 Casuall.

    I've got a 2-8 Leupold on my 454 Raging Bull. It'll help if ya wanna take a longer poke at something.

    I agree with this statement"

    Although I don't have a Raging bull I have a SBH Hunter, and this is the scope I want to put on it someday. There are times when you want to reach out and touch that coyote that is sitting away out there!

    The recall applies to all Performance Center Model 460 revolvers shipped by Smith & Wesson prior to September 18, 2006.
