You won't get an accurate range, but will get within a few hundred yards one way or the other.
Fuze length isn't a straight linear relationship with range.
Range tables do give the fuze lengths for every hundred yards of range, however fuze lengths weren't ordered to the guns, what was ordered was the range (usually nearest hundred yards) and the Corrector setting, these data were set on the fuse (bar) indicator and the actual fuze setting read at each gun and then set on the fuze. The standard Corrector setting was 100 and this gave the range table fuze setting (depending on whether or not the FBI accomodated actual muzzle velocity derived from calibration shooting). Other corrector lengths were ordered during ranging (or predicted) to achieve the desired burst position and compensate for the meteorological conditions.
