If your “MD” scope is subtending a 3.6″ target .5 mil at 50 yds. then the subtension between dot centers is 14.4 inch per hundred yds. @ 9X instead of the mil std. of 3.6 IPHY. Although the scope could be off this much I would doubt it. Are you sure the “variables” in the equation are correct?, i.e. tgt. size, range to tgt., mil-reading?

OK–I think I see what may be going on–you must be milling at 3X maybe instead of 9? 14.4 IPHY would be calcd. at 2.25X actually, but 3X would be difficult to discern a mil reading relative to 2.25X.
