LEUPOLD 6.5x20x50 LR VXIII MIL DOT calibration

I have called Leupold several times and got several different answers on which power the mil-dots are calibrated for, today I tested it and it seems to be correct on 12X but that seems to be an odd power for the calibration. Please respond if you know anything about this. This scope is about 2yrs old.

it shouldn't be too hard to find out for sure yourself.

there's lots of different ways to find out how many MOA the reticle markings span, i'd do it this way:

draw out a line of the length that would be the MOA span of the lowest to the highest marking on your reticle, on a target at say 100m, and change the magnification of the scope until the line fits perfectly between these markings viewed through the scope. That magnification is the one your looking for.
I have already done this and worked Mil relation at 100, 300, 600, and 800 with a 12X12 plate and like I said it seems to be correct at 12X I was just wondering if anyone else has had this experience with a Leupold veriable power mil-dot.
