I didn't mind the thickness of the reticle when I looked at a mil dot on a 5-20x50 I just didn't like the size of the dots themselves. They seemed really big. 

With the reticle pictured above I'm more worried about the heavy posts being way to thick and extending too far into the center of the reticle. 

I've never seen the regular duplex dot anywhere in person.

Attached link shows Trijicon's subtension specs for their reticles.
Fifth one down gives details on the reticle you're interested in.  Looks like the center crosshair thickness varies by mag range.  (Crosshair thickness is 0.2 MOA for the 5-20 model at the highest mag setting, 0.3 MOA for the 2.5-12.5 model, and 0.4 MOA for the 2.5-10 model.)  Short of being able to actually look thru each scope/reticle combo, to get a sense of whether those are too thick or thin, find the Trijicon scope/reticle you ARE familiar with in the same link and compare subtension numbers to get an idea if it's going to be too thick or thin.  I tend to be pretty finicky about reticles because all my scopes tend to pull double duty -- hunting in timber and punching paper.  If I were buying a scope that may spend part of its time on an AR that shoots 0.5 MOA, I'd find a reticle any thicker than 0.2 MOA frustrating.

A couple other things I'll add.  Given the choice of having parallax adjustment or not, you'd not find it a frustration while hunting 200 yds and in (you'd set it once and forget it) but you'd probably enjoy having it if stretching your AR out on the range, shooting varmints, etc...

My favorite double duty scope for what you are trying to do is a Leica ERi 2.5-10x42 with an IBS reticle.  Awesome glass and reticle combo.  Crosshairs are thin (0.1 MOA) but extremely crisp so they show up well and the reticle design draws your eye to the center immediately.  The illuminated dot is available if things get too dark (I've yet to have to use illumination, even before or after legal shooting light).  Leica quit making those a few years ago, but you can still find a few floating (2.5-10x42) or (3-12x50) if you're patient.  Great eye relief (3.8-4.0 inches) and extremely forgiving eyebox to get behind.

Leica Visus is re-incarnation of the ERi that you like. Until I tried Leica Magnus, that was my favorite general purpose hunting style scope. I gave mine too brother and use the Magnus 1.8-12x50.

And Tangent Theta on my precision gun. Yes, I know it is a tough life, but someone has to do it...

LOL -- I suspect you're single, have a lot more understanding wife than I do, or are a lot craftier at hiding cash for toys than me.

I have a 1-4 red post that I really like.  I have had several of the 5-20 mil dot with green dot in the center a couple of them failed from the start and went  back.  I have had a 3-9 didn't like the amber dot in the cross hair.  I tend to like red think amber washes out when pointed toward light sources. I run a 3x compact ACOG and a 1.5x compact ACOG and like them a lot.   I would go with the red triangle post I find the point of it ideal and very fast.

Married, with two small kids. I do have a few tricks up my sleeve.

Just pulled the trigger on this scope. Pretty confident I'm going to like it.
