I recommend stopping dialing wind. There's plenty of days that if I told you to make a wind call, dial the wind, and make the shot holding center, without ever touching the wind knob again, you'd miss. I dial wind when I'm unsteady and the target is large enough. So 90% of the time I hold wind. If there is a lull or a gust I can correct immediately. Ask everyone that has had me spot for them, and calling wind. We're both on scope on the target and I am saying (for example) hold point three for wind......now point five.....now point three....gust! hold one Mil. This can happen in ten seconds.
For my purposes I almost always want FFP. As mirage gets bad I can back down and my reticle is still correct for holding wind. As I am unsteady I can back down and the reticle is still correct for holding elevation or wind. Even on my SS 1-6X I have FFP. On 1X I am basically running a shotgun bead, on 4X, or 6X I have a real distance reticle.
There is one scope magnification I would be fine with SFP, and that is the 2-10X. With FFP on the lowest magnification the reticle can get lost at 2X if it is fine enough. And if I were going to be shooting distance I'd most likely be at 10X anyway, where the reticle subtends properly.
