I've been thinking about using my Ruger 10/22 instead, to practice .308 long-range shooting. Can the experience be "transferable"? I mean, I know the experience I gain gauging for drop and wind are common to all calibers, but at what distance should I practice with the 10/22 if I wanna play like it was a .308 at 600 - 1000 yards?

Thank you.

Dont shoot a 22 for long range practice. Reload cheap .223 ammo but shoot it in a nice rifle. 22 is fine for basic skills, but it wont immitate a centerfire at long range. YOu have to spend alot of money to get consistent rimfire ammo.
