2x to 4x magnified red dot

I am shooting a 460xvr with a 4x fixed power scope. I plan to hunt with it this year but I find it hard to quickly find anything in the crosshairs. I have a cheapo red dot on my ruger MIII 22lr and its spot on when I pic it up. What I would love to find is a 2x up to a 4x magnified red dot that will handle the punishing recoil of a 460. I see that BSA and NCstar have AR style red dots with magnification.
1. they are to large and 2. they are not going to hold up for more than a shot or 2.
Does a higher end manufacturer have a magnified red dot? Someone like Leopold, Burris, etc...

The Vortex Sparc includes a 2x screw-in lens. It severely restricts the field of view but for shooting stationary targets its ok.

I did look at the vortex and the Lucid. Talked to lucid and they said they will not warranty against the 460xvr recoil but they would love to know how it works out for me.
