12x Max power vs other (HFT)

This is an honest question, not trying to bait an argument....

I've seen numerous posts relating to limiting HFT to 12x max power scopes as opposed to higher power scopes turned down to 12x, and not just in the thread below.
Is there really a difference?

I have a 4-12x Leapers that seems to range find as well as my 8-32x Leapers when both are set to 12x. I know my collection of leapers scopes may not be the best baseline for comparison but it's what I use.

If I continue to shoot hunter I'll use any scope I'm permitted. Right now I choose to use the 8-32x because I also shoot the same rifle longer range off a bench and like the higher mag in that situation and i'd rather use the dots or re-zero than swap scopes.
