It doesnt matter what range you are sighted in at. That doesnt have any effect on the flight of the bullet. It just affects your aiming.
This is what you need to know:
What is the muzzle velocity of the ammunition you are using? What is the drag coefficient of the bullet? What is the altitude you are shooting at? What is the temperature of the air?
At 47 degrees F at sea level, the speed of sound is about 761 mph, or 1100 feet/second.
Look up your ammunition's ballistic chart and see how far your bullet will travel before it drops below 1100 fps.
If you're at 1,543 feet above sea level, and it's 75 degrees F, the speed of sound will slower because the air will be less dense.
