trying to understand, so please bear with (and correct) me --- I gather that at ~3 pSec/mm, the physical distance between the BNC short
BNC Male Short:

Male ref plane is outside edge. Using drawing above, full length is
15mm. ref plane is recessed a little and short is also recessed a little
from end. Lets call ref plane to short as ~13mm. Velocity factor of 0.67.

13mm * 3p/mm * 1/0.67 * 2 = 116.4ps

Measured value is 113.5ps. Physical length for 113.5ps = 12.7mm
