In my view, everything jrm40 said was correct and was very well said. But that last sentence suggested that you'd be wasting money on the scope you want. That I don't agree with. If you want that scope for the reasons you stated, and if you can afford it, then that's what you need to buy. We won't be hunting with your scope.
All that said, I'd personally go with a low mounted Leupold 4.5-14x40. That does not make it a better choice than what you want. That just makes it what I want. So buy the scope and put it on your rifle and kill a monster buck with it and send pictures.
