Default Best Holographic Sight for 44 mag?

I have been looking at the ATN Ultra Sight. Anybody out there have any experience with the Ultra Rest?

Other models or brands? I like the idea of an Eotech or ATN type sight for both eyes open target aquisition.

It will hold up to .44 Mag no problems. Expensive, but a quality optic. I do think you get what you pay for here. Lesser quality optics will wash out in bright sun, won't survive the recoil, etc.
