.243Win for Elk?

Would you trust a .243Win rifle to take down your trophy Elk?

I wouldn't. But I was flipping through the channels a while back, and flipped to the Outdoor Channel. There was a boy (12 or 13 I'd say) sighting in on a nice bull. He shoots. He misses. Bull just takes a few steps and stops. The boy shoots again. A hit. The bull goes about 50yds and falls over. Then they cut to them (the boy, his dad, and a guide) standing by the bull. Then they say how far the shot was and what the rifle is chambered for. 535yds and a .243Win

Do you think this would be a common scenario at this range? Or did this kid just get really lucky?
