Default Scope for a Super Redhawk 44 mag.

What is the best scope for a Ruger Super Redhawk 44 magnum? Money is not a factor, looking for the best scope for the gun.

Thanks!

When I was hot and heavy into .44 mags I always went with 2X or 4X Leupolds. I had Super Blackhawks, Redhawks and Super redhawks.

Never had a problem and I loaded my stuff HOT.

I've got long eye reliefe scopes from all the major players, and my goto on a 44 mag revolver is an old Tasco 2x with the 30mm tube. I think they refered to it as their "Proshop" line. It's got tapered cross hairs with a dot. Mounts are Redfield stainless mounts. I do not like the Leupolds at all, and have finally got rid of the last one. I found a plain jane Weaver to be better. On heavy recoil guns the Leupold does not hold up any better than the others do (a .357 Herrett will eat one in a hundred rounds and a 35 Remington isn't far behind it). Also had parallex issues with the Leupolds; while that old Tasco just keeps plugging away
