I understand the amusement. It's been my experience that you've got to shoot the number of rounds = the yardage to become experienced enough to step up to the next yardage.
For example, you need to shoot 100 rounds at 100 yards, 200 rounds at 200 yards, 300 rounds at 300 yards, etc, etc, to get to the 1000 yard line. It's better if you learn from every shot, or every 5-round group.
There is no magic answer to marksmanship. It is kind of like that old joke about practice. "Hey, Mister, how do I get to Carnegie Hall?" "Practice, son, practice."
