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.

It will still help you with breathing and trigger control and do it on the cheap. What's not to like there.

No you can't simulate a .308 in the way you are thinking, but you can still practice the basics. Practicing with ANY rifle is going to make you a better shooter. Practice, practice, practice!
