May not be quite as fast but at extended ranges a lot more accurate.
Something you might want to look at is the leaupold retractable tape for yardage/drops.
It's like a very small tape measurer that you can write down all the info on, it mounts to either the top or bottom of the scope. That way you can get your dope without ever moving the rifle or having to rase up. Just pull it out, read it, and let'r wind back up.
I've used the same taped on drop/wind chart as you for decades though... HA!
