Lol,, oh boy I wish it was that easy !!! You could just go to a tourny, dial in whatever you need, and hit the one hole each time ! I would seriously think about switching occupation if it were that easy ! LOL !!.
I think you will have better luck posting on the “Reloading” section of this forum,, or just google 'exterior ballistics' and continue your research,, not to take you away from this site, but the subject you ask is just so broad you will get a million different answers.. Your original idea is a good one imo.. most people just use a ballistics software program and use that as their bible, which is fine of course.. but, you see, now your’e talking about all the other factors that come into play.. there is no substitute for practicing in the actual conditions which you will hunt/shoot… use a ballistics program/drop chart as your guide, then go out and shoot at each distance to verify the data /and adjust.. just know that you will not always be shooting in the same position, under the same exact circumstances each time, that’s what makes it fun !! good luck, and I wish I were where you are !!
Ps. there is a summary somewhere on this site called “derivation of the range equation” quote? I know its here try searching, very good reading on the math behind miliradians, minutes of angle, etc….
