200+ yard shots require knowing a lot about your rifle, scope, and load. What is the maximum yard shot you are going to make? Also, I'd recommend looking at looking at ballistics tables for your caliber and load in question.

After about 300 yards the bullet of a 7mm-08 really starts to drop, for shots past that range, it may be worth it to invest in a range finding scope.
