First Elk Hunt

I'm heading to WY in the fall for my first elk hunt. Not sure if I am going to have both a bull and cow tag as the drawing hasn't been held yet.

I have decided on a 300 WM for my rifle but am a little hung up on bullet choice. I have some, a couple boxes, of factory federal loaded with 180gr. speer hot-cor bullets but I'm just worried about bullet performance. I don't want to get there and wind up with a poor bullet choice.

I have used hot-cors for whitetail and never had a failure yet but an elk is not a whitetail.

Please any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.
