How about using the xval function in the calculator on the AC magnitude,
and then dividing this by the results of the bandwidth function on the AC
magnitude. Plot this as well as the AC magnitude, and then change the
X axis (double click on the X axis) from the independent var to the
scaled xval waveform. I think that should be it?

I typically do this by using printvs in the calculator and printing to a file.
Then use the table function in the calculator to read it back.
Alternatively, you may find some of the attached SKILL code useful!
