Do you think a Bushnell Trophy scope will withstand the recoil of 454 Casull?  Was thinking of mounting one on my Ruger Super Redhawk.
 
 
Thanks,

.......................The Trophy may do the job on a 454. But any concern regarding the Trophy, would be with its extended durability or reliability beyond a few hundred rounds.........For added assurance, I`d opt for the 3200, a Nikon, or Leupold and spend more money.

I put a cheap scope on a .454 once and it only took about 2 shots and eyepiece came flying backwards off the gun.  I would spend the extra and get a decent one or you will be spending again.  
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

I have a buddy who has a 2-6 trophy mounted on a .480 ruger and its held up so far, a couple of hundred rounds, but you never know.
