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.
