Some have the reticle in the first, or front focal plane, while others have it in the back, or rear focal plane, and there are even scopes (Shepard comes to mind) with reticles in BOTH front and rear focal planes! On fixed power scopes, there is no practical difference, but on variable mag ones, the size of the reticle and its features remains fixed in relation to the image being viewed on front focal plane scopes, so it (line widths, dots, spacing and what have you) appears to get larger if the mag is increased.
