I don't own a 308 and it's just my opinion but I believe that there are many much better suited rounds out there. I generally try to limit myself to within 300 yards but based on a couple scouting trips I'm afraid I probably will not have the luxury of doing that for this particular hunt.
I have 7.62x54r, 303 brit, 30-06 and all are capable of killing elk at those ranges it's just that those are all open sights...at that range I can barely see the elk, no less pic out the kill zone.
