22x is more than enough scope for 750+ yard whitetails. Even the smaller more camoflauged version in the west (coues deer).
I have used NF 22x extensively. I have also used the 40x. I liked the 22 much better. Less mirage and other visibility issues. A deer at 1K on 22x looks huge as it is.
Currently I am using the NXS 3.5-15x50 even for my longest range rifle. 15 for me is plenty out to 1K.
My 308 sports a 10x (Mark 4). 10x for me is plenty out to 750 yards on deer size game and works so so at 1K but is pushing it. However shots out to 750 yards is about all I will ever ask my 308 to do.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
