Seems high to me too. Also, you can find .50 cal components cheaper. I'm not a big fan of red dots for hunting.

I have a .54 cal Knight that is a blast to shoot, but maybe not as versatile as a .50 cal. The .50 would be a little better for long range, especially if you are shooting the 150 gr powder loads and saboted bullets. 50 cal components are easier to find in the stores. Either caliber will work on game just fine.

I do enjoy the .54. Shooting 500+ gr maxi balls is some good fun!
