I dunno I like your settings especially the 200. On my rs500, target nits of 400 makes everything too dark. I am not interested in sacrificing overall brightness during the entire movie to get 1/10th of a second of better highlights when needed here and there. I'd say try 400 and compare for yourself if you like it better or not. There's nothing wrong with using the 200 just remember it leaves you much less headroom for HDR highlights - but in my opinion projectors aren't too great at this anyway.
Edit: another factor here is your screen size. The larger your screen, the lower your nits on the screen. Consider a 135" screen is about 55 sq feet. If you're running on low lamp at around say 1250 lumens, your lumens per sq foot is about 22.7. Your nits in this case is 244. I run this scenario and enter 200 for my madvr value. If you're willing to crank up lamp power to high, on same size screen, you're looking at about 100 nits more. Likewise, if I run a 96 inch screen, I'm going to be around 484 nits on low lamp and 688 nits high lamp.
