Scope for 17 HMR?

I have become very interested in the 17 HMR rifles. I like my 22 lr but think the 17 would be an upgrade on range and accuracy. Does anyone have one and have a scope recommendation? Would a Leupold VX-I 3-9x40mm be too much scope?

The 3-9 power scopes are perfect for that caliber. Great field of view on the lower power and great precision on the higher power. Your choice is a perfect combination. Good luck and let me know if I can be of any help to you!

Call me crazy...but I like to zoom in on critters...so I use a 6-24 power scope on my 17HMR. Its just my preference and not for everyone.
