As a lot of you know I bought my wife a 7mm-08 for an elk hunt coming up in October. I have been back and forth on bullet selection so I decided to email Nosler to ask what their thoughts were. I figured I would get a bit more feedback from them after waiting two weeks for a response... Here is the email chain. The two sentences in quotations are all I received back.
"Generally its not looked at as a ELK round. But If I was to be used a 150gr Partition would be my choice"

Subject: 7mm-08 ammo
Message: My wife and I are hunting elk in Wyoming this fall. We didn't feel comfortable with her .243 for cow elk so we purchased a new 7mm-08. Now I am trying to decide what the best factory ammo to use would be. Shots will be kept below 300 yards. I am down to three bullets and two of them are yours. The three are Partition, Accubond, and the TTSX from barnes. What are your thoughts on the best 7mm-08 round for elk?
