if you can see it, you can hit it.

If you have the time and money to dedicate to the range a couple of weeks out of the year and it is withing range of the firearm, maybe.

Unfortunity I can not view you tube down range.  However, the hardest part shooting long range is wind calling.  Once you know your drop, dail in and read the wind.  I've done 500yds wtih a M16 and M4 with iron sights and 1000yds with a M14 with irons and sling.  Still great shooting with BP guns.

Have they gone back to teaching indirect fire with tripod mounted machine guns ?

No, they have not.  I studied it but did teach indirect fire with both the M79 and M203s.
