Obviously, the closer your target, the sooner the bullet reaches him, which means (for him) it's far more dangerous to expose himself for 1 second at 100 yards than at 500 yards. Add to these times the amount of time it would take you to spot him, shift focus to one eye, look through the crosshairs, and squeeze off a shot. With practice, you should be able to engage a target that exposes itself for 1.5 to 2 seconds.

The snipers I personally train exercise their ability to engage fleeting targets more so than any other shooting technique.
