270 for elk

Any of you guys out there use 270 Win for elk? I know it is a suitable round but have been trying to talk myself out of using one for a hunt coming up. I have a load with 150 Barnes TSX whipped up for it, should kill them just fine, right? All the guys going with me are using mags, ultras, blah, blah, nothing against them, they are exceptional elk cartridges I just dont have one . Is the main limitation of using my 270 going to be effective range? Im thinking I wont shoot at one past 250?? 300? Who out there has taken elk with 270 and what were the ranges of the shots, the outcome, follow up shots necessary, terminal performance, distance game traveled before expiration, etc...Thanks guys
