I have an Ithaca 20ga which is lightweight, so the scope takes a beating, especially with 3" slugs. I use a Redfield Revolution 2-7x33 with the Accu Range reticle. Plenty of eye relief, great glass, durable & dependable, & made by Leupold.

Depends on your budget, to a large degree.

Murdy makes a great point. My advice is to buy the best scope that you can afford. Something like a rather compact 1.5-6x40 or or 2-7x40 or 3-9 x 40 should work great. I am big fan of the Conquest line as far as value.

But, that beast is going to be heavy. I'd put a lightweight fixed power on it either 3 or 4X).

I can only speak from my own experience - and it isn't an expensive one.

We have many H&R USHs in the family. Their performance is awesome. They are all topped with Simmons Pro-Diamond scopes. They are all 4X power scopes except one of them that has a 2X power. My 12 gauge laminated camo USH is the oldest of the bunch, I bought it when the USHs first came out and the original scope is still just fine.

I'm guessing that the guns are so heavy that they eat most of the recoil and the scope doesn't get stressed too hard?
