shooting 'big bore' is too expensive.. can .22 long range?

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.

Basicly I shoot my 10/22 hitting clay at 200 yards zeroed and 300 with holdover to practice long range.

Just remember to shoot your big boy too so you remember the recoil

You can also make your targets smaller and smaller and keep stretching the distance.
+1 to that!
My best is a shotgun primer at 100 yards
