    I use my mildot scopes for holdover at ranges out to 800 yards. Was wondering if the mildot is spaced on the 6.5-20 at 20X like my 4.5-14. Or is it the same spacing at 10X? Thanks

    Leupolds have to be on the highest power for correct mil dot spacing- one milliradian which is approx 3.6" at 100 and 36" at 1000.

    The correct spacing of the mildots on that scope is not at the highest setting. It's around 11x or 12x actually. The best way to check it would be to use the barber poll with the markings at 3.6" at 100 yards and turn down the power until they fit.
