    3-9 or 4-12 are probably better. you don't need 20x for a 17hmr. I have a 3-9 on mine and love it. it gives me enough mag on 3 to not have to turn the power up on coyotes out to 200 yards and at 9 power squirrels and prairie dogs out to 150

      brock that is an excellent scope for the .17hmr. It gives you a base low end and a good upper end. The 17 is capable of excellent accuracy so why not take advantage of it. I have a 8x32x56 on one of mine and a 6x24x44 on another. Too much cartridge for close up small game so reach it out there and use what it was designed for. I know a lot of guys will tell you all you need is a 2x7x40 or 3x9x40 but unless you are shooting at running game it's all about accuracy and the more ppower you put on a target the better you can see it. For running shoots or close up work add a scope ring to the top and put on a holograph site or even add a tri rail with holograph,lazer and flashlight for night time varmint hunting. Don't limit yourself to choices,it's all about what works for you. have fun with that little .17hmr it is a great cartridge
