I love the math with 2nd FP reticle subtensions. Cally, check your math on your calc. Reticle subtension is INVERSELY proportional to magnification, i.e. as power INCREASES reticle subtension DECREASES, and vice versa, so in your example above, at 14X the dot to dot spacing will be .7 mil.

One of the fun things I like to play with in the field/range sometimes is to run the ballistics program then calculate what power any particular reticle stadia point will be zeroed at any particular distance at any particular subtension. It’s fun stuff imo, and teaches the shooter a lot about their scopes abilities.
