No hard and fast rule but if you have 30 MOA left the 20MOA base would work just fine.

I usually use a 200 yard zero with this rifle, and from there I have 27MOA of down travel. Is that too close or would the 20MOA work ok?

Assuming the base is machined correctly to be true 20MOA, and the final mounting height of your scope is not higher than with your old rig, you should be fine. Even if you changed your mind and zeroed at 100 yards, the difference can't be more than 2 MOA. It'ill be close, but the added up travel will maximize the capability of your rig to the limit.

Best of luck.
