For my hunting rifle I use drop cards that I build up carefully through the summer, I make them for different altitudes and keep the one I need for the trip tucked inside the butler creek cheekpad on the stock.
Couldn't have said it any better myself. I do exactly the same when big game hunting. Alot of times, you need to be quick out to 600 yds in my area, after that, you usually have time to dial. (Not that it matters, because I won't take a shot past this, without taking the time to find a solid rest and checking conditions).
