I guess it depends on how you hunt. If you are always on your belly, or have a shooting stand, any high-powered variable scope is fine. If you tend to walk about and can expect some offhand, sitting, or available rest shots (trees, fenceposts, etc.), you might consider a Leupold VX2 with wide-duplex reticle. Wide really means there's more fine reticle than standard duplex, so it's better for long range shooting.

I have several higher-powered variables that I dislike for hunting because the parallax adjustments slow offhand and quick rest shooting. With the Leupold VX2 or VXII, I can see blueberry harvesting lane strings beyond 300 yards (cotton kite string) and can't reliably hit that small a target at that field range, regardless of scope magnification.
