    The Partition would be my pick out of the two listed. The Nosler Accubond and E-tip are both very good bullets also.

    Either would be fine & do the job. I'm also an accubond fan & I'm going to try out some barnes this year.

    My brother killed a 370 bull in Utah with a 210 grain Berger at 750 yards. High shoulder. Not a step. Shot out of a 300 ultra. I've always used partitions 180 grain out of my 300 mag but I backed down to 168 grain Berger out of my 7mm stw and can shoot much better. Always shot placement. Not just the bullet. I shot a mule deer at 200 yards and it had shrapnel behind its ear from a lung shot 168 grain Berger. Those partitions are great if ur not shooting a long distance.

    shoot the one that shoots best, if they both shoot good, I prefer the partition for elk out of the two in question.

    I vote for the 180 Partition. I dropped a mature grizzly in his tracks with one from a .300 Weatherby. It's my go-to bullet always!

    They shoot good & will lay an elk out. I got a buddy that shoots them out of his .300 win mag. He uses nosler brass, IMR 4831 & federal 215M primers.

    I personally like the 180 swift scirrocos and out of my 300 rum. I have a 700yd kill on nm bull with them.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

    "my 2 cents" - Of the two listed I'd go with the partition as long as is shot good. Accuracy is always most important. I think the Sierra Gameking is a little bit of a light framed bulled for a 300 RUM. I say this due to a conversation had with Sierra back in the early 90's. We had Gamekings that came apart on elk we had killed out of our .280's. They explained that the bullet was made for longer range shooting, and that the jacket wasn't built for close range hard hitting situations. I still like the bullets, but for elk and 300 RUM, I'd go with something tougher. I'd consider the Accubond for sure if it shoots good, the Ballistic Coefficient is way better than the partition. I'd also consider a Hornady Interbond. They shoot good in my 300 win, and they are tough. All of this being said.....Accuracy and shot placement are most important! Good luck
