The whole left side edge where the label for reticle is and the wide side bar are not in view. Everything else shows fine and as you increase power the issue goes away. I thought maybe it was just me but another shooter noticed the same thing when he was testing it out before I even mentioned it. Anything else seeing anything similar?
I believe this is normal in a FFP scope. At 4x you have the largest field of view which makes the reticle very thin, but fills the scope with the center of the reticle. When at 24x the reticle zooms in on the target which allows the outer thick part of the reticle to be vizible. I hope someone would explain this better than I.
Mine does the same thing. I have the same except it is a MOA with the Vortex Custom vertical Turret. Once you get used to the way the FFP acts you will really like it.

I added both the MOA reticle at 4x and at 24x to show the different way you see it in the scope. I just looked through mine at 24x and the thick parts are not seen either.
