Does anyone know the thickness of the center section ( X ) of the reticle in the Bushnell 6500 Elite 4.3x30 Tactical scope... and at what power?

It is second focal plane the reticle will appear to remain the same size throughout the power range so the thickness of the crosshairs will actually cover more area at wider field of view lower powers than at the high end.

Well... DUH!  No kidding??

IF you look at any 'scope catalogue, you will get the subtension of the reticle at max power - that way, you know how thick (in moa) it is.  That was my question.

There is a BIG difference (pun intended) between a reticle that subtends 1 MOA and 0.065 MOA at 20x.
