View Full Version : Need advice on handgun scope.

November 10, 2000, 08:27 PM
My second post on my new Ruger SRH in .44 mag w/ 9.5" barrel. I need some advice on a scope. I am looking at either a 2X or a 4X, both Leupold's. My hunting will be primarily for whitetails, ranging from 50-75 yds, possibly up to 100 yds, but no more. This is a SS revolver, so I also need advice on aesthetics - should I go with black gloss, black matte, or silver?

Heck, you spent good money on the revolver. You're spending good money on the scope. Just go with the silver Leupold 2x and you're be asthetically correct :D

2X is a good choice. color is whatever suits you. I sometimes like the mixed stainless and matte black look even if it's just black mounts. just me. I would avoid 4X. I've got a 2X on my .44 10" contender and it's great to 100 yrds. The only handgun I have with more than 2X is my "gopher gun", a Browning buckmark silhouette with a 4X Leuopold.
