I would guess that the 1moa dot is more accurate because it does not obscure the target as much as the 4moa dot. True?
Also, does the 6 o'clock tick mark on the outer ring help with long range [hold over] shots?
Has anyone done calculations for range and bullet weight for that 6 o'clock tick?

At medium to long range your using hold over so both are equally bad at that. Your not using the reticle

At mid range, it is better the Aimpoint, the 1MOA dot defines a finer point of aim then the 4MOA dot. at 300 yards, I usually aim at the head and make chest hits all day long. a head size target at 300 yards is pretty small, it helps to have a finer dot. As far as long range, DevL is absolutely correct, at that point, you are so far off the reticle, you basically do hold overs to make a shot. I have some EOTech reticle pattern that hold some promising features. I will try to scan it and post it for you. Using the laser projection technology, EOTech can actually create a multiple object reticle and still hold absolute parallex free. using this technology, EOTech designer can design a reticle with BDC which will assist in long range aiming, or incorprate a M203 reticle to it.
