Default Distance Your Sight Your Rifle?

I live in the open range areas in Utah and would like to know what distance you sight your rifles in (for)?

Steve

P.S. Do you suggest 200 yards for a 30-06 180-gr. AccuBond at 2,750 fps and hold over for longer distances or go for 300 yards right off the bat?

For 200 yards using the above load, bullet is only 1.8" high at my altitude of 4,500' above sea level.
