Yes it is easier with a M3 because (as already stated)

1) the magnification of M3 is higher (.91 vs. .72 or .85)
2) the rangefinder baseline is longer

BUT, this might be important only for distances where
IMHO and experience with my m6 .72 and M3, the DOF is smaller
than 5-10 cm (2-4 inches) depending on your practice and eyesight.
