You don't need a big rifle. You need to hit where you're aiming. People kill elk on a VERY regular basis with a 243.

You need to use a gun you shoot well. That means a gun that doesn't paralyze you with fear at the thought of pulling the trigger. 243, 25-06, 7mm-08 are all enough for elk.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
