For very acurate results in high realism, I just go infront of him.

You can also eyeball it good enough. Especially with help from the rec manual.

I usually guesstimate the AoB, and I rarely miss because of it. The exception being long-range nighttime shots. Those tend to miss sometimes if I'm too lazy to do the long AoB calculation. Also, you don't need all this fancy calculating if attacking a convoy from within. All you need to do is clear the notepad and aim slightly in front of where you want to hit the ship. Fire away and don't forget to be in silent mode.
