It's a blanket statement, that has nothing to do with FFP or SFP. It has to do with reticle/optic design.
There are thick FFP reticles, just as there are thick SFP reticles.
The problem lies with the vast majority of people having exceedingly little experience with FFP. It's unknown to them. Actually, it's shocking to me just how many people make statements about FFP optics and their capabilities without having any experience with them.
A nightforce velocity reticle in a 5.5-22 covers .07" at 100yds while on 22x, and .10" while on 15x. The lower the power, the more the reticle covers. A GenIIXR reticle in a Premier 5-25 covers .07" at 100yds while on all magnifications.
The statement about FFP reticles not being fine enough is a myth. There are LOTS of myths surrounding FFP optics, which are happily perpetuated by people that lack the FFP experience to know otherwise.
