The finer mildot

Hi,
I was thinking about thickness of Bushnell mil dot scope.
The Legend mildot is coarse. Now I would know if the Bushnell elite 4200 have the finer mildot of Elite series, or the 3200 mildot is the same thickness of the 4200 one.
Thank you

    Mil Dot reticles should all be standard, no matter what. Otherwise mass confusion.

    A mil dot should subtend (cover) 0.2mils.

    A mil should always be 3.6" @ 100yds.

    All mil dot reticles should be in first focal plane (my opinion) keeping everything constent.

    FWIW

    Yea, that would make things easier if you did not have to worry about your power setting when ranging or holding over.
    For my eyes, a prarie dog at 800 yards requires more than 10x. My Tasco Custom is calibrated at 10x, so I found another calibration point near 20x where I can use half readings. So now, I have 2 sets of range and drop charts to tape to my stock. One for 10x and another for 20x. Confusing, yes, but it works.

    Yes, its fine to have two mildot settings!!!
    But my problem is the cross hair whidt. In the legend is thicker then I would see. So I am planning to buy another bushnell mil dot, But the elite mild dot is finer then the Elite?
    I don't know this...
