Yes. Unless I'm missing something here, 5.75 degrees is 5.75 degrees, no matter what you're seeing it through. The 4* circle describes 4 degrees as seen on the MSA charts. Get another piece of plastic and make a circle proportionately larger than the 4* circle, and that'll show the same area on the charts that you'd see in your finder. The true FOV size is the common factor. Degrees is degrees!
