jimogden,,, I would get an Ultradot,, my brother has one on his .475 Linebaugh and has no problems with the unit at all, very sturdy and holds it's zero well.

Hope it works out for you. I passed one up a few months ago because prices were so inflated. Still think it would look good next to my 500.

The "new" 460 round looks just like the 45-60 that was used in the 1876 Winchester.

Define affordable. How much will a series of inexpensive scopes turned into scrap cost, compared to getting it right the first time?

Leupold & Burris used to be the go-to brands for durable pistol scopes back in the heyday of pistol silhouette shooting. I have two 30 yo Leupolds from that era that are still going strong.
For red dots, Burris Fastfire or something very much like it comes to mind. Kind of small but very durable. Anything that is designed to be mounted on the slide of a semi auto is probably worth a look.

Honestly I'm not a big fan over very long barrels on a revolver, but that's a nice looks wheel gun. And I really like that holster for it.
