If most of your shooting is going to be done on the range and at set distances where you dope and dial all your shots there's not much reason to set your sight in at more than 200yds.
For myself most of my shooting is done on the fly normally at ranges between 300-750yds, for my long range rigs, and 200-600 with my .204 so I set my scopes for a dead zero of 450yds, and just adjust my hold accordingly.
