    I've always used Nosler Accubond 140 grain out of my 270 for all elk and deer I have taken over the years.

    This photo is from a recent trip to Africa. One guy had a small scale so we weighed the bullets to see how much weight each bullet retained.

    The first bullet is a 260 grain Partition. It retained 220 grains for about 85% retention.
    The second bullet is a 180 grain Core Lokt. It retained 80 grains for about 45% retention.
    The third bullet is a 180 grain Barnes Tipped TSX. It retained 177 grains for over 98% retention.

    Take this for what it's worth. Each bullet hit different animals so it isn't exact science but might help out a bit. I certainly was happy with how my Barnes bullet performed!

    I only shoot Nosler so you know which one I would recomend. I started shooting the partition but my gun likes the Accubonds better so I switched. I have killed bulls with cheap Remington Core Loct ammo and cheap Winchester ammo growing up so most 180 grain bullets will do the trick on an elk. I would use whatever your gun shoots the best.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.
    Shoot the best, Shoot PSE!

    Core-lokt ultra bonded should also be fantastic on wapiti! I would tell ya corelokt original on the 75th anniversary but they don't chamber it in 300 rum. Ive always been a proponent of matching ammo and rifle so ive never tried nosler in a rem even though I hear great things.

    I agree that shot placement is the important factor. But bullet construction is important as well. You wouldn't go elk hunting with a FMJ bullet. Most of the bullets mentioned will do fine, with the exception of the Nosler Ballistic-tip. I've seen quite a few failures with them and Bergers. I use Barnes and Accubonds now, but have experimented with lots of others. Just my opinion.

    I have shot both the Sierra Gameking and the Nosler Partitions and they both perform very well, no complaints for either bullet. I have used the Sierra's religiously on Deer and Antelope. I have used the Noslers on some Deer and my wife used the Partition on her Tule Elk bull, great performance. I want to use the bullet that is going to retain the majority of it's weight upon impact. Im am leaning toward the Nosler Accubond or the Nosler Partition
