Depends on the application, but otherwise I would agree with my esteemed colleague above.
If you are using it for hunting, lower magnification would almost be necessary because at the high end of the spectrum the field of view is so damn narrow you might spend too much time trying to line up the shot.
If you are building an .06 paper puncher, then a 6-24 variable with the 50mm objective is a great choice.
