Help with elevation

Reported in the general rifle area

I am planning on shooting NRA highpower matches this spring but don't have a place to check my hand loads for 300 & 600 yards. I am using 77g SMK for 300 & 80g SMK for 600 yards. My White Oak upper has a 1/4 min. rear sight. Could someone give me a starting point for these loads and distances. Thanks in advance for the information.

How fast will the bullet leave the barrel? What elevation is the range at? How many thousandths of an inch does one elevation click on the rear sight move it? What's the sight radius?

Once that's provided, I can calculate a good guess then post it.

Didn't we just go through this where you asked the same questions here?
