New NXS Question

Guys I recently bought a NF 3.5-15x50 with an NP2-DD reticle. For those not familiar the reticle has two dots one in the center that is slightly large than one that according to the book is 12 MOA under the center dot at full power 15x.

My newbie question is what does 12 MOA mean? I know that MOA is minute of angle and that I think is one inch at 100 yards so what would 12 MOA mean? I would like to figure out what that second dot will mean to me at 300 and 400 yards with my .204 shooting 35 grain Bergers at 3900 fps. If someone can tell me how to figure that kind of stuff out I would appreciate the education.

To most of you this is probably a no brainer but I am new to the game. Thanks

One MOA is 1.047in at 100yrd. 2.094 in at 200 yrd. 3.141in at 300. 4.188 at 400. Etc, etc.

Run your drop chart in MOA, and your set.
