I guess it all bolis down to what you consider long shots.
Is 45 moa total elevation going to be enough? That is all the 12x42 has.
Also the field of view, especially at close ranges is going to make fast target aquisition a bugger even at 12 power.
I know with my 8x32s I find it hard to get onto something at under 500 yards fast set at 8x
For FClass the 12x42 should work well, but hunting I think I would opt for a tad less magnification.
