I have a colt A2 with a cheap norinco 3x9x40. I took it shooting last weekend and zeroed it at about 65yds....then went to about 200 and it shot half the length of the target paper(about 6-8inches) high. Is this because of the distance between the scope and barrel? Having a carry handle I imagine it would influence zero with different yardage. Should I get a flattop?

You have zeroed the rifle incorrectly.

You should have zeroed the rifle at 200 yards. By zeroing at 65 yards the round was still on its way up away from the target, it ached somehere really high and was only begining to come down at 200 yards.

If you follow the method in the link you'll end up with a flat point blank range of about 250 yards.
