I'm looking at a 17hmr that has a 2-9x scope on it. I've only one gun that wears a scope, a 22lr with a 4x. I've never used a variable before. I am wondering if I will be happy with that 2-9 or if I should go up a level. I'm no marksman and won't be taking long shots with it but it seems to make since to me that within reason, more power is better. Any thoughts?
