I was wondering if you guys could help me out. I am trying to decide on a scope for my Ruger SRH in .480. Money is a little tight right now so I'm looking for something that won't break the bank, but is not complete junk. I will be using it mainly for whitetail hunting here in Wisconsin. I also don't plan on any shots over 50 or 75 yards. I have read a lot of posts on the Burris 2X20, but I have also read a couple that were very favorable for the Swift 2X20. Anybody on here have any first hand experience with the Swift? I had one for a while on my .17HMR and was happy with it except that I wanted something with finer cross hairs.
 
I'm pretty new to the scoped handgun game, and I'm not quite sure what I should be paying attention to in the specs of the different scopes. Thanks for any advice you might give.
 
Also would a 4 power be to much for my yardage?

A buddy and I have Rugers in 454 and 480, I mounted a 2x leupold and he mounted a bushnell trophy 2-6.  At first I gave him a hard time about the Bushnell, thicking that it would fail him, but so far its held up to about 200 rounds.  I believe this scope sells for under $200 and is available in silver or black.

Check the eye relief specs on the Swift 2x20. Listed as only 9.8"...If so, not good for arm extended shots. 
 
When you look at the Burris or the Nikon 2x20`s eye relief specs, their eye relief lists a better EER range.
 
I`d definetly go with either the 2x20 Nikon or the 2x20 Burris on this one!!

I have a Weaver 2.5 to 8 power mounted on a .223 simiauto pistol and it has held up good so far, I think it would be adequate for shots out to 100 or 150 yards. I have not tried had holding it above 4 power. It seems a good scope for the money so far and it is fully multicoated.
