recoil safe red dot or holo sight?

i have a 5.5" ruger sbh in .44mag. i tend to load it hot.

i have already destroyed 2 inexpensive red dots on it. a $75 millet, and a $110 Bushnell.

i have around $300 to spend on one.

id prefer a max 3moa dot as i shoot 100yds often, and a 5 moa dot(most common) hides most of the target.

what do you guys think?

TROY:

"ultra-dot" is the brand i have seen on a lot of big-bore revolvers. If you need a telescopic sight instead of a red dot, choose one of the pistol scopes made by burris, that also has the posi-lock feature.
