Actually, it should work like that. Theoretically, a 4 MOA dot should cover 4 inches at 100 yards, whatever the magnification. The higher the magnification, the more that 4 inches takes up proportionally.

It's important for the reticule image to scale up with the magnification if it provides any ranging or lead information, like the new EOTechs.

I'm curious why most adjustable magnification scopes don't do this, but rather just set the mil-dot scale to be accurate at only a particular magnification...
