I've spent most of my life with a laminated drop and windage card on the stock of every one of my rifles.
I can also draw a cross hair and mil dots on that card and show the approximate "dead Hold" for any range I'm willing to pull the trigger out to using this method.
I took a kid a few years ago who'd never made a shot with a rifle on anything live or inanimate at over 200yds, and after a few hours practice one afternoon he killed a doe at a measured 936yds.
I did the same thing with the husband of the CEO of CZUSA who was afraid to even shoot a rifle, and in an hour had him make 9 consecutive hits on a target at a measured 573 yards with their "Ultimate Hunting Rifle" combo. Hell we did that with cheap remington 300WM ammo too HA!
It's really not that hard to do once you simply learn the basics, have quality equipment, and a little faith in yourself with a voice in the back of your head saying "I can make this shot" instead of "there's no way in hell I can hit something that far away"... .
It's really quite doable with a little practice and an accurate rifle.
