I curently have a NXS 5.5X22 would a higher power be better, would a differrent brand be better?

For very long range, the less power you can get by with, the better off you are.
For a given conditions, the higher the power, the more mirage you have, the more atmospheric problems you have.
Assuming that you could hit them, you could use a 10x-12x for Prairie Dogs at 2,000 yds. Under afternoon sun, you couldn't even see Prairie Dogs at half that distance with a 50mm rifle scope set at 50x.
This is a very interesting read of guys whackin' Prairie Dogs at 3,520 yards.
They used a spotting scope of only 36x.
22x and lower will do you just fine.
