I have a 3x version but the reticle numbers are hard to see.....and glasses don't help as I only occasionally use them for reading. In fact, when I try them it blurs the sight picture. So, since I have this issue and I want more magnification anyway, I'm considering the 6x version.
My question.....will the reticle be bigger or seem so with increased magnification? I've no way to look at them side by side regretfully.
Thanks much y'all....

Your reticle should be among those listed.

I know the question seems simple, but it isn't.  These reticles are not designed to be symmetric, and they aren't exactly meant for old eyes.

For what the 6x48 costs, you could get a really nice variable.

I am an ACOG fan, they do many things very well, but they have their limitations.

I'm an acog fan and had a similar issue when I first used an Acog. Keep this mind, that I don't wear glasses either. Three things helped solve my problem, number one was adjusting the optic and giving myself a little more eye relief, focusing solely on the reticle and using peripheral vision to use the range finders, I also used duct tape over the actual light absorbing piece(can't remember the nomenclature) and that dimmed the reticle a bit and made it easier to focus on.
