5 cm is quite an high value when the precision is concerned...then how does an shooter who doesn't know any physics will make it..if ofcourse he has 1 shot.
A hunter who plans on shooting at things 100 yds away or more must account for the drop, though whether they understand the physics behind it is another matter.

I don't have a lot of experiece with rifles, but I used several when I was in the Navy and all had distance compensation on their open sights. It was precalculated, so all you had to do was dial-in the distance and that raised the rear sight the appropriate amount.
