Need advice on a scope for Ruger Super Redhawk 454 Casull 7 1/2 barrel. Brand? Magnification? For Hunting and Target shooting.

Burris 2-7x32 with ballistic plex is what I would pick but honestly I've never used any handgun scope.  Between it, Leupold, and Nikon it has more field of view and a decent price. 
 
I think it is still made in the USA also.

I have the same exact pistol, with a 2x leopold scope mounted.  This power range is perfect for hunting, but alittle more power might be nice for target shooting.

I have one pistol with a scope it is a 45-70 encore with a Burris  1x however I have had a  Burris  3-12x32 balistic plex on a .308 Encore pistol barrel and I was really not happy with that scope when you got above about 6x the eye relief was wrong for arms length.  It would have been fine for a light caliber but nothing with recoil because the pistol would smack you between the eyes every time it went off and a balistic reticle only works at the highest power.  I would stick with a low power, either the red dot aimpoint Thunbs Upwhich I think is best for hunting & target  use or a 2x fixed Leupold or Burris. You will have to have a rest for anything with very much power.  I really think the aimpoint would be perfect as we are talking a one hundred yard cartridge wiht a 454Casul.  I sight in the 45-70 at 100 yds. If we were talking really flat rifle cartridge I would say more magnification but these are brush guns so you have to get on target quickly.

I use 2x scopes (Sightron and Leupold) on my Contender barrels (30-30 and 44mag respectively)and find them fine out to 100 yards which is my self imposed limit for shooting them at deer.  I have just gone to the Aimpoint indicated above for  a shorter barreled SBH in 44mag and thus far find it more user friendly than the scopes.  (I will keep it at a 50 yard gun until I have had more time with it.)  The sightron scope is the brightest pistol scope I have owned which have also included a Burris and a Bushnell.
