Your thoughts are what I have been concerned about. I thought that maybe with the larger area between the large posts that it would provide the necessary field of view at long range. That space is so much larger than the existing Fine Duplex that I presently have in the scope. But it still seemed to provide the fast eye focus of a traditional duplex. Of course, as you stated, it would all depend on the the actual size of the two cross hairs.
I guess I'll call Leupold and ask them what the size of the wire is on the two different reticles.
