I would also look at the burris 2x7 with balistic plex and posilock.

These scopes are tough as nails.I have one on a contender in 444
marlin and it takes 4 rings to keep it on the pistol (almost 58 ft/lbs
of recoil) and after over 400 rounds it is still perfict.

And they cost less than $300.00.

I,m a big leupold fan but this burris is very tough and has good glass.

You will want the extended eye relief no mater what scope you chose.

Good luck

For handguns to be shot off hand I recomand people to stay with 2X scopes, but with what you have there is no way, unless you`re alot better man than me, to shoot it well without some kind of rest. For that reason I recommend the 2 1/2 x 8 Leupold. I have one on my .500 Preformance Center and love it.

That has got to the most unusual looking revolver I have ever seen.
I use the 2.5x8 Leupy on my 414 Super Mag and it works great, it should be a perfect match for your rig.
You got to post a shooting report for that monster when you get a load worked up for it.
