      44 mag super redhawk scope suggestions?

      Im new to handgun hunting recently purchased a super redhawk. Im going to scope it I would like to be able to reach out to 100 yards. But still be able to shoot close targets. Any ideas or suggestions?

      What's your budget for glass?

      Two I have used on a normal scope-ring-equipped Redhawk .44 and can personally recommend are Leupold models; the fixed 2x and the variable 2-8x:

      Leupold 2x20 FX-II Handgun Scope

      Leupold 2.5-8x32 VX-3 Handgun Scope

      For a lower-cost option, I used this Bushnell on several single-shot hunting handguns for almost 5 years with no troubles at all, but most of them were either heavier guns or smaller-caliber than a Super Redhawk, so I can't speak to its long-term durability on your handgun with your loads:

      Bushnell 2-6x32 Trophy XLT Handgun Scope

      All these will work fine at 2x for close-range work, and the variables can be cranked-up to a higher power, and when used from a rested position by an experienced shooter, can lob those big bullets out to longer distances with surprising accuracy. Even the fixed 2x will keep them all on a paper plate out at 100 yards and more if the shooter does their part.

      Thank you for the response. I intend to spend some money for good optics leupold was what I was thinking. And I know ur rite im going to have to practice a lot. I intend to use hornady 240 grain xtp seems to be the favored round for big game hunting. Im leaning towards a variable scope I would hate to spend money on a 2x power and realize I would like play in it. Again I am determined to do this I think handgun hunting takes more skill and I like to be skilled.
