Does anyone know the subtensions in a PF 600?

I'm shopping for a hunting scope for my 45-70.  I want something that will give me aiming points out to 200 yards.   (if you've never looked at a 45-70 before a 405gn bullet drops ~21inches or 3 mils-from a 100 yd zero to 200) I'm currently running a Swaro Z3 and it works great, but I want to move that to another rifle before next season and I'm shopping for options that are somewhat less expensive. 

I've got a number of tactical scopes (Bushnell/SS/Night Force) and I don't want something that big, or that expensive.  It's frustrating that Swaro is the only company  that I have found that publishes subtensions of the hashes and dots on their making hunting scope reticles.

Just about all companies publish the subtensions on their holdover reticles, although Pride Fowler is one of the few that do not.  However, you can back calculate them using the trajectory of one of the loads they mention if you are so inclined.

Generally speaking, if you are looking for a less expensive scope for you rapplication, something like Vortex Viper 3-9x40 should work for you.  Here are the reticle details:

Size-wise somethink like the inexpensive Burris Fulfield II 2-7x35 with BalPlex reticle

 or the Vortex Diamondback 2-7x35 with BDC reticle:

would probably make the best fit.
