Leupold TMR Reticle for Varmints

Hi guys. I'm researching scope options for my new rig. I really like Leupold's TMR reticle because of the open center on it. The scope that really interests me is the "Mark 4 ER/T 6.5-20x50mm M5 Front Focal w/ TMR Reticle." I'm wanting to try out a first focal plane scope. My question is, How thick is the reticle going to be at 20X magnification? I'm hoping that the open center of the TMR reticle will keep from covering little critters up completely. Does Leupold have a detailed drawing of the TMR reticle specifying the width of the reticle lines in mils? Thanks for the help guys.

    You know I have that same scope for sale in optics section right now. Very thin lines, and leupold quality.

    The opening in center isn't much of a significant , can hardly see anything through it . It s more for target? Its a very small window. I like mine.

    I have two 6.5-20X50 SFP scopes with TMR, it is a great reticle. I'm not sure about line thickness however in the FFP models but doubt it'll cover much of the target.

    dude, that is a $1700 scope!!!! and its still a leupold. that is more than I paid for my nightforce with MOAR reticle. yeah its not a mil based reticle and yeah its not FFP, but its still a nightforce and not a leupold.

    I use a lower power MK 4 with a TMR on my coyote rifle and really like it. Familiarity with the Mildot system is useful for running leads, and quick ranging typical with this hunting. Mine is not a FFP, but this has not been a hindrance to my shooting style.
