MOA is Minutes of Angle. You can look that one up. As far as the MOA dot.......a 2 moa dot covers a 2inch area of your target at 100 yards. A 3moa dot covers 3". A smaller dot is more precise, a bigger dot is easier to see.

@100yards, 1"=1 moa
Thank you! By you explanation for a person with diminishing eyesight the 3moa would be better for me. Is this correct? This is why I don't want iron sights.
