    Mazz Hunter,

    Please keep in mind that the .30-30 Win has felled a lot of elk. Even the .303 British, 7x57, the .35 Rem and other such cartridges have killed everything in North America.

    At those ranges it shouldn't really matter what you shoot as long as it's a bonded bullet.

    Yes BB, lighter weight for caliber Barnes 150 gr. TTSX bullets will do the job nicely, IF your gun shoots them. They're tough bullets and they'll retain over 90% of their weight.

    Consider the 150 Barnes TTSX. It will save a little recoil, shoot flat, and knock em' dead.

    I'd steer away from the SST's. I shot a couple of antelope and a couple of deer with them last year out of a .270 win (130 gr) and I had jacket/core separation on on an antelope that I shot at...

    I agree with these posts, but I would like to add that my .308 tends to shoots a lot better with 165 grains instead of the 180 or 150's. I am not sure why it does that, but there was a big...

    If your boy hits that elk behind the shoulder through the lungs, any of the bullets mentioned will work fine. On a less that perfect shot, where bone is encountered, a Partition /Accubond/Barnes X/...

    I use 180 gr. Nosler Partition in my .300 Wby.....exclusively. I'm old school for sure, but dead is dead and the Noslers do that job perfectly!

    Running a few quick calcs, the 165gr provides as much or more energy at 500 yds anyway so it would be in the "sweet spot" for weight/speed ratio. It'll work fine at normal hunting distances.

    As elkhunter96 mentions, the interbond is much better suited for elk. The SST are a rapid expansion bullet so penetration could be a problem. I shoot 165 grain superformance interbonds in my 30-06...

    165 is perfectly fine at the distances you mentioned. Although, if I remember right, the SST is designed for smaller animals like deer and antelopes. I killed a few bulls using the Hornady Interbonds...
