It'll be about an inch and a half low at 200yds and about 4.5" low at 300yds.

that would depend on which 165gr bullet .. using a hpbt, spitzer, or a fmj..
an most important the muzzel velocity....
if got your muzzel velocity is up at 3200 fps, an zero'd @100yrds you mite be looking at drops of: -2.50" @200, -9.5 @300, -22.25 @400, --41.50" @500 yrds
the spitzer bt show a little less drop at each stage then the hp does


if you are using a 1/4" moa scope, here are some adjustments you can try
.
100 yds.1 click = 1/4 in. 2 clicks = 1/2 in 3 clicks = 3/4 in 4 clicks = 1 in

200 yds. 1 click = 1/2 in. 2 clicks = 1 in. 3 clicks = 1 1/2 in 4 clicks = 2 in.

300 yds. 1 click = 3/4 in. 2 clicks = 1 1/2 3 clicks = 2 1/4 in. 4 clicks = 3 in.

400 yds. 1 click = 1 in. 2 clicks = 2 in. 3 clicks = 3 in. 4 clicks = 4 in

500 yds. 1 click = 1 1/4 in. 2 clicks = 2 1/2 in. 3 clicks = 3 3/4 in. 4 clicks = 5 in.
hope that helps some

Purely opinion, but I'd suggest a 200-yard zero. For all practical purposes, 2" high at 100 means dead on at 200 and around 6" low at 300. Around two feet low at 400, and four feet out at 500. That's the performance of the Sierra 165-grain HPBT that I've gotten at my range...

And, give or take an inch or two, the Sierra 150- and 180-grain SPBTs do the same.
