I recently picked up a rifle with a Kahles Helia L 3x/12x-56 on it and I'm not finding a lot of information about it. Few questions:

The reticle enlarges when magnification is increased, can't remember does that mean the reticle of first focal plane or second?
 
Currently Kahles has a model called the "CL" is mine an older version of that?
 
Lastly, on their website I can't find the subtensions for this scope. Any know what they are or where I could find them?

The reticle increases in size with magnification because it is in the first focal plane (FFP).
The L is closely related to the current C model. The CL are 1" scopes. I have an L model in 2.2-9x42 with the 7A reticle and it is an outstanding scope.
The reticle sub-tensions are as follows;
 

Subtensions


          C 1,1-4 x 24 L     C 1,5-6 x 42 L     C 2,5-10 x 50 L     C 3-12 x 56 L

+1  I have a Helia L as well.  Just as good as my Helia C scope.

Thanks a million tahqua. I have the plex reticle so by "opening" I assume they mean from the end of one thick post to the other? In other words from the center point to the thick portion is a smidge over 12.5" @ 100yrds?.
 
This is the first premium scope I've owned. I'm spoiled already and I haven't even taken it afield yet. I'm not sure if I'll be able go back to my old junker scopes again Cheers.
