I think you made the perfect choice. IMHO, I want the lowest amount of magnification that allows me to see clearly the point I want to strike. The lower the magnification, the wider the field of view (generally speaking), so I'll give up the ability to count the hairs on a deer for the ability to find the target faster.
But, that's just me. The main thing is to do what you like, and it looks like you have.
Carry on, brother.
