Sorry, but that's impossible- unless you were launching them at a measly 1700 fps...because that's the MV required to get that bullet (150 SMK) to drop 6" from a 100 yard zero at 200 yards.

Suggest you re-check your loads, because something is waaaayyy off.
Sounds more like a starting load.

According to JBM Ballistics, with a 100 yard zero, the 150gr MK would need to have a MV of about 2,450fps to drop between 5 and 6" at 200.

Most 150gr data for the 7-08 has starting load velocities around 2,500fps.

1,700 fps would have it almost 13" low.
