If you want it real smooth take it to somewhere around 150 and then slap a coat of primer on it and sand that back from 150, 200 through 320, and 400. Maybe repeat or at least put another coat of primer on (generally the paint still looks better imho if the primer is knocked back flat at least)

This looks nice for gloss paint, expecially on more porous wood.

For less shiny items I’d get less excited.
