Need help with Leupold LR recticule

I have a VXII 3x9x40 and have been trying to determine the distance (in inches) the dots will be apart at say 400 yards. The Leupold site indicates that at 9x the dots are 2.19, 4.8 and 7.82 moa from the center respectively. Here in Arkansas, I always sighted my rifle in at 200 yards and just used a little hold over at longer ranges but since I have the scope I want to use its capability. Its on a custom 6.5x55 that I easily whacked prairie dogs out to 350 yards using my hold over method. Any help will be appreciated.

    You can work it out by multiplying the moa by the distance devided by 100
    ie 2.19 moa x400 yds over 100 or 2.19 x4 = 8.76(inches)
    4.8moa at 400 yds would be 4.8 x4 = 19.2
    At 250 yds the first dot would be 2.19 x2.5 = 5.47
    not exact but pretty close.
