No More than 10 Power?

First of all, I've never used scopes, so I don't have much of an opinion (or knowledge) on this subject. However, I was speaking with a long-time SF sniper the other day and he said they never used scopes with a higher magnification than 10 power. He said that any greater than that and the scope starts to pick up mirage and is therefore less accurate. This gentleman was not particularly young, appeared to have been pretty involved in the sniping world for a few decades, and had most recently spent some time in Afghanistan. I trust that he knows what he's talking about. But I wonder if anyone else has any thoughts. For those who use more than 10 power scopes, do you feel they give you an advantage? For those who don't use any more than 10 power scopes, why not?
