I took this from the IOR website.  Its describing two different reticles:

The 4a reticule is a German classic.  The difference between the standard #4 and 4a is any 4a reticule has a wider opening in the center utilizing the thin lines. Great for low light, our 4a has thin lines of .25 moa and thick bars of 1 moa @ 100yds.


The most copied reticule on the market, we flattened the mil dots into hashmarks, added 1/2 mil increments and the rest is history. Fine lines are .05 mils, heavy lines .5 mils. This original comes in our fixed powers, 2.5-10 x42 non illuminated, and some older scopes.

So which one has thicker heavy lines?  1 moa at a hundred yards or .5 mils?

Also does anyone know if you can get reticules swapped or order specific reticules fro IOR?  Thanks

1 MOA = 1.047" .5 mil= about .18". Have no idea if you can swap reticles in IOR scopes.

1 mil covers 3.6" @ 100 yards so a .5 mil thick line would be 1.8" while the .05 mil would cover .18".

So the second reticle has thicker lines than the first if I understood that right.

The reticle with mil sub-tensions would have heavier "heavy" bars, but finer "fine" bars.
.5 mils= 1.8" vs. 1 m.o.a.= 1.047"
.05 mils=.18" vs. 1/4 m.o.a.= .26"

The ad says it is 1moa @ 100 yards"; is it never 1 moa? Say, at 400 yards, is it 1 Mia there too? What about 1,000,000 yards, surely it can't still be just 1 moa.

Web sites should hire professionals.
