Re: Scopes on revolvers

2x to 8x is indeed a lot of magnification for a long eye relief scope. You'll have to play with it to find a sweet spot.
Only scoped short gun I have is a Mk2 with a 10" bbl, only a 2x though.

The Lee turret is cast steel/iron or aluminum? Aluminum is why I only use my Lee C press for short cases and crimping.
On an aluminum press the outside supports are the only way to not tweak the turret style, the steel/ iron has the strength to use a center mounting system.
