    I am no expert. In fact I have only been elk hunting 1 time. I used a stock Rem 700 in 7 mm mag. I dropped a 5x5 (what seemed to be huge to this Texas white tail hunter) mature elk with 1 shot in the bread basket at 325 yards from the bottom of the mountain.
    The exact load was:

    Win brass
    CCI primer
    160 grain Accubond
    62.5 grn IMR 4831
    3.290 OAL
    2920 fps
