I have a Remington 700 SPS Tactical in .308.
It has a 20" heavy barrel.

I have a Bushnell 6500 2.5 - 16x42 mildot sitting on top of it.

I currently have it zeroed in a 200 yards.
Is there any reason to zero it in farther?

I don't think it really matters too much....only would come into play if you want to never touch the turrets again and shoot as far as possible....then you would want a longer distance zero.

200 yards is a good basic zero, and I'm guessing you are not just a hunter/range shooter who only does 300 yards or less and wants the best MPBR.  You might be since you are not sure where to zero the rifle though....
 
If you are brand new you should get the Mil-Dot Master that everyone recommends http://swfa.com/Mil-Dot-Master-P91.aspx
 
even if you are not brand new get one anyway...
