I put a Holo sight on a Ruger BH in 44mag and it will drive tacks

I've had a leupold 2x20 on a 454 SRH for about five years now and its still going strong.  I've got maybe 200-300 rounds on the scope.

I used a Bushnell 3200 2-6x32  and a Leupold VXIII 2.5-8x32 on a TC Encore .308 pistol and both did fine. The Leupold was better in low light but pistol scopes are not the best in low light anyway! I liked the Leupold better but it cost a lot more at the time too !
