Holster for .460 XVR 8-3/8" w/scope

Just recently picked up a S&W .460 XVR with the 8-3/8" Barrel. I have a scope on the way and want to get a holster for it. Would prefer one for hunting and can't seem to find anything I like.

I would appreciate any information on what you are using and the pros/cons of the holsters.

Thanks!

I have the same revolver but no scope yet. Which did you order? That's next on my list. I'm only done a little poking around regarding holsters and I think the way to go is Galco - here's the one I've been looking at

Galco Kodiak Hunter Shoulder Holster, Havana KH172H (I think it's available in either right- or left-handed models).

The scope rides outside the main holster with it's own cover, keeping the size of the holster reasonable and allowing it to be used also sans scope. And Galco holsters are very well made. This one costs about $200.

can get a pic if you would like... pros are that it works nicely... cons are that the pistol is very heavy to carry...even on a shoulder rig... and Im used to carrying two full sized handguns via belt holsters every day.
