I am trying to decide on a scope for my 17 hmr.

Between these two which would you recommend:

Leopold vari x II 3x9x40 duplex

Nikon Buckmaster 4.5 x 14 mil dot

Cost of the two is roughly the same ~$280-300

Nikon has more power, Leupold probably has better optics?

Only thing I am going to do with the gun is shoot prairie dogs at up to 200yds. Beyond that I will use my centerfire. I normally like higher power for the varmints, but since the 17's range is limited is it really necessary? Would I be better off with a lower power higher quality scope?

Thanks for the replies. Kind of a long story but I already own both of the scopes, but they are both new and unused. I am going to mount one on my 17 and sell the other. I bought them at a local closeout sale. Anyway between the two which would be better?
