I agree wholeheartedly what works for you may not work for me.. Here in Wisconsin I shoot a lot of my deer running at 100 yards or so while doing drives or deer that have been kicked up by other hunters . So to me low power is 3 or 4 x. Out west I have shot deer and elk at 300+ yards and the last elk I shot was at 50 yards.
Out in the open at 50 yards I'm OK with the 5X, close timber is a different story. 4X is my absolute max at the low end in close timbers. My Veracity is 4-20 but it's on a rifle that has 30" barrel + MB rifle so that's out of the question for timber too.
