As for making the best use of your time.

You need to work on your basic fundamentals at 100-300 yards this will allow you concentrate on you and the gun and not worry about the wind.
Once you can put consistent tiny groups on paper at 100-300 yards and do it with near perfect recoil control then you can stretch it out. All the while you need to be taking notes on your rifle and load. Dope is ever evolving. If you plan to shoot steel range cards are good enough. If you plan to shoot NRA F Class or High Power you need more accurate data that reflects the environmental conditions. Wind is the hardest part for people. There is no formula because all wind is different. Up and down drafts, swirling currents, the topography the wind is flowing over all plays a part in how the bullet is effected at range.
And you need to learn to walk before you can run.
