I have a Leopold FX-ll on my 44 super redhawk. It is locked on at 50 yds, that is my max comfort range. From a bench it holds a 3 inch group over hundreds of rounds. I reload all my own, but steel shot shells and that makes a big difference in accuracy. To bad now a days it's almost a wash to buy factory, unless you reload on a large scale.
I will have to ditto , ditto. Any hunting handgun will have plenty of recoil. I had a lesser quality scope on my Dessert Eagle and it did not take long to knock the guts loose. I have used Leopold's for quite a while and am very happy with them. There are more expensive manufacturers out there, but I am the only one I need to impress. With a lifetime warranty, it's money well spent.
