I'm just getting into the long range game, and out of curiosity I was playing with a typical 22LR load in my ballistics program. I calculated the BC at about .140, and with a MV of 1200 fps +/-, the 300 yard trajectories and drift are remarkably similar to that of many of the long range cartridges 800 to 1000 yard ballistics (100+ inches of drop and 38-40 inches of wind drift @ 10mph/90 degrees). As 1000 yard ranges are rare where I live, and I assume many others have the same problem, I was wondering how many people practiced with .22s on a more common 300 yard range? Considering the life and expense of barrels and components for the big stuff, it seems to me like there is some value to setting up a .22 for long range practice. With some basic steel targets scaled for .22s and the ability to burn hundreds of rounds with virtually no expense, it seems you could really accelerate the learning curve.
